Fernando Sor’s New Complete Works for Guitar in eleven printed volumes is the Tecla re-engraved edition, edited by Brian Jeffery.
You can also obtain Sor’s New Complete Works for Guitar in digital form.
This edition, whether printed or digital, is designed to be the standard modern edition of Sor’s guitar music. There are full historical and bibliographical notes, and the edition is fully practical for performance.

“I’ve received my order!!!! It’s the best collection that I’ve seen!!!! The quality is incredible!!!” (a customer in Brazil, writing about the New Complete Works for Guitar of Sor)
“This is a new contribution by Brian Jeffery . . . Most interesting in this work are Jeffery’s “Notes on the Pieces” at the beginning of each volume. These notes contain such information as publication history, background, and major editorial concerns. This really provides a wealth of information for the player of these works. This is a beautifully produced work. The paper and covers are of very high quality, and the volumes stay open easily on the stand. These books are a pleasure to work with. This new edition of Sor is excellent.” (Soundboard, 2004).
“This work [Volume 1] is highly recommended, and I anxiously await the publication of the remaining volumes” (Classical Guitar).
