On this website you will find hundreds of excellent recordings that we have reviewed ourselves, our current Top Ten best-sellers, recent Gramophone’s Editor Choice discs, and details of current special offers. UK customers can purchase these discs from us post-free via this site using the secure PayPal facility.

Other recordings can, of course, be purchased from us by contacting us directly. Members of our discount scheme should now be able to obtain their discount by clicking on the new ‘Apply your membership discount’ button at the top right corner of the page.
