(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

'Every number brings new riches, and two have never been recorded before. Indeed, 'The Way of God' is a revelation' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)

'This disc is full of the wonderful writing that we expect from Purcell … that is becoming better known and understood through Robert King's performances' (Fanfare, USA)

'Every number brings new riches and two have never been recorded before. This magnificent project shows no signs of flagging' (BBC CD Review)
