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

‘Issued to mark the composer's ninetieth birthday, a most touching and eloquent tribute’ (Gramophone)

‘As the fullest representation at Tippett's solo vocal music in the catalogue this disc is a must, both for devotees of the composer and for collectors of English song’ (BBC Music Magazine)

‘A delight. Almost certainly one of the vocal recital discs of the year’ (Classic CD)
