The Archive service is for CDs which have been deleted and where the musical content is not otherwise available.

(If a CD is scheduled for re-issue within the next 3-4 months, the message 'To be reissued on …' will replace the 'Buy Archive CD' button.)

This service offers a production-quality CDR with printed label, inlay (tray) card and, at the minimum, a 2pp booklet (including cover artwork and complete track listing), packaged in a normal jewel case.

In many instances we will provide complete printed booklets, but please note that this is not always the case. Pricing is £13.99 per CD, regardless of the original sale price of the disc(s).

Reviews

‘This attractive disc includes two examples by Italians and one Dutch piece … but the natives do pretty well, and the best and most individual work is the sonata by Joseph Gibbs … its finale is a hauntingly beautiful set of variations – all played here with just the right freedom of spirit and immediacy of musical response by Elizabeth Wallfisch’ (Gramophone)

‘An attractive collection of English violin music of the period … recording and presentation are first-rate’ (British Music Society Journal)
