We are a small and new organisation devoted to recording 19th- and early 20th-century opera by British composers. Britain produced many great operas in those pre-Britten days, but very few are remembered today. We ask you to help us bring them to life again - you can find links to details of our present projects on the left. We're issuing the recordings on our own label.
Our recording of Ethel Smyth's The Boatswain's Mate, the first complete recording, is now available and in October, Opera magazine made our CD their Disc of the Month! Please click here to go to the Sales page; and click on 'What's New' in the left hand panel for more information. We've also had a good write-up in BBC Music Magazine (December) and a glowing one in Musical Opinion.
What the critics are saying: ‘... this beautifully presented premiere recording ... conducted with infectious brio by Odaline de la Martinez... Nadine Benjamin’s creamy lyric soprano hits her musical marks in the scena and everywhere else... high production values’ (Opera, October 2016). ‘The recording quality of the music is ideal. The clarity of the singing is never in doubt. ... As a package this is exceptional. It is exactly how ‘revived’ operas should be presented.’ (MusicWeb International)
We’ve also recorded our second project, Solomon and Burnand’s Pickwick, and Grossmith’s Cups and Saucers. Please click on the Pickwick tab on the left for more details, or email us.
