Formed in 2014, ECS Publishing Group is the corporate parent of E. C. Schirmer, Galaxy, and MorningStar. Publications span all genres of classical and sacred music, with a specialty in choral music.

Galaxy Music was founded in 1930. The firm took on a more educational focus. New agreements with overseas publishers gave access to the music of composers like Vaughan Williams, Delius, and Gordon Jacob. Galaxy composers soon included K. K. Davis, Ivan Galamian, George Rochberg, Alice Parker, Donald Waxman, and Robert Ward. In 1989, Galaxy was sold to E. C. Schirmer Music Company, an enterprise with similar scope and history.
