Label of the Year

Delphian

Founded just 14 years ago by Paul Baxter and Kevin Findlan, Delphian has always impressed with the consistent quality and originality of its recording projects. Remarkably, in 2013-14 no fewer than five of Delphian's releases were given the Editor's Choice accolade in Gramophone. These five recordings perfectly demonstrate the range and quality of Delphian's output:

 

Handel The Triumph of Time and Truth

Ludus Baroque / Richard Neville-Towle

Sheppard Sacred Choral Music

Choir of St Mary’s Cathedral, Edinburgh / Duncan Ferguson

'The whole is recorded with admirable presence and clarity; a worthy successor to this choir’s very impressive recording of Taverner’s Missa Corona spinea a few years back...' Read the Gramophone review

 

‘Remember me my deir’

Fires of Love

'There’s a sense of eavesdropping on something private and intimate, so delicately understated are the performances...' Read the Gramophone review

Philip Higham (vc)

'Higham’s expansive but tender playing that pulls this music as far away from slapdash as it is possible to be...' Read the Gramophone review
