About

Situated on the banks of the River Thames below inspiring hills and woodland, Cittern Press is an independent publishing business based in the Oxfordshire countryside.

Established by Robin Alexander Lucas and launched in 2020, our first titles are a series of printed music books for modern cittern, mandolin, octave mandola and bouzouki, including a six volume anthology, Musick’s Delight on the Modern Cittern, and several standalone volumes focusing on specific periods and themes.

Cittern Press also produce printed maps of historic and inspiring landscapes, and, like our music books, they are thoughtfully produced and beautifully designed. The first map to be published is a Map of Wittenham Clumps and Little Wittenham Wood showing footpaths and archaeological features. Together with the narrative poem ‘The Money Pit – or – The Sinodun Hoard’. 

Both Musick’s Delight on the Modern Cittern and the Map of Wittenham Clumps are by Robin Alexander Lucas.
