We also compile the best artists from the first half of the 20th century, such as Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby and Louis Armstrong, into beautifully designed CDs.
Our classical recordings present a range of music, from the haunting tunes of the first millennium through medieval songs and dances to the finest Elizabethan composers and onto Handel, Mozart, Vivaldi and many more.
Our albums enjoy critical and commercial success, winning for example a Gramophone Classical Music award this year and regular acclaim as Editor's Choice from Gramophone and other leading magazines, newspapers and music websites around the world. Our repertoire has been used in many television programmes, including the recent BBC production of 'Wolf Hall' and in such diverse programmes as 'Time Team' and the 'Paul O'Grady Show'.
The Gift of Music website allows us to offer you our whole CD range directly and conveniently at great prices along with a fantastic free CD offer. We also offer lots of other unusual gift items, many of which complement our CDs and the music we've made, making them great gifts for music lovers!
