McAlister Matheson Music

Welcome to the McAlister Matheson Music website! Our aim is to present customers with a selection of the best recordings from the vast catalogue of available discs. 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.

We will be expanding the site and adding many extra features over the coming weeks and months. In the meantime, we would welcome any comments and suggestions about the site that you might have.
