A Rose Magnificat
Studio Master: SIGCD536  Download only  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘The vogue for pairing Renaissance and contemporary choral works is well established but this is a programme that draws the dialogue between the two repertories into fresh animation … performances are pristine: carefully balanced and always cleanly tuned, and a more muscular, characterful top line offers a welcome contrast to some of the ensemble’s English rivals’ (Gramophone)

Charpentier: Leçons de ténèbres, Litanies & Magnificat
Studio Master: CDA68171  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘A new disc of delights from the sprawling oeuvre of Charpentier is always welcome, especially when it comes from an ensemble as reliable and adaptable as Arcangelo. A quick glance at the list of singers and instrumentalists gathered by Jonathan Cohen for these recordings is assurance enough that they won’t lack for expertise, musicality or style’ (Gramophone)

Dohnányi: String Quartet, Serenade & Sextet
Studio Master: CDA68215  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘It’s a gloriously overripe, at times rapturous interpretation [of the Sextet], and I’m smitten by it. If you’ve never taken to Dohnányi’s music before, these performances should win you over. If you’re already a convert, you’ll want this’ (Gramophone)

Mozart in London
Studio Master: SIGCD534  Download only  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘Excellent performances of some of the fledgling Mozart’s London pieces interspersed among an abundance of rarely investigated repertory … fingers crossed that The Mozartists will produce several more revelatory commemorations over the coming years until 2041’ (Gramophone)

Stephen Hough's Dream Album
Studio Master: CDA68176  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘A bran tub of bonbons, yes, but much more than that: it is also a portrait of an artist in love with music of all sorts … witty, wistful, extrovert, introspective and cheeky by turn, this is a masterclass in a certain style of piano-playing, and a dream of an album’ (Gramophone)

Stephen Hough's Dream Album
Studio Master: CDA68176  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘If I were choosing just one track, tricky, it would be Ernö Dohnányi’s C major Rhapsody (from Opus 11), an impetuous gem played with élan and, in the gloriously ‘big’ romantic melody that emerges, a generous and communicative heart. Fab! Excellent sound, too. Another couple of releases like this and Hough will have his own version of Your Hundred Best Tunes’ (Classical Source)» More

Stephen Hough's Dream Album
Studio Master: CDA68176  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘It takes a personality of flair now to serve up a few bonbons in a recital and Stephen Hough is a master of the art … the skills needed to bring off a programme like this include sparkling virtuosity and the nonchalance to suggest it was all nothing really. Hough has both, like that magician of the keyboard, Shura Cherkassky, in the previous generation’ (Financial Times)» More

Beethoven: Piano Sonatas Opp 27/1, 31/2, 79 & 109
Studio Master: CDA68199  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘As we would expect from Angela Hewitt, there's much thoughtful and deeply-felt playing here. Hewitt is particularly successful in Beethoven's slow movements: the lyrically sustained Adagio of the Tempest Sonata Op 31 No 2, the gently lilting Andante of the little G major Op 79, and the profound serenity of the concluding variations in the Sonata Op 109’ (BBC Music Magazine)

Charpentier: Leçons de ténèbres, Litanies & Magnificat
Studio Master: CDA68171  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘Charpentier’s Leçons de ténèbres are among the glories of French Baroque music … these performances by Arcangelo of the Litanies and Magnificat are unfailingly expert … the baritone Stéphane Degout and the tenor Samuel Boden strike a fine balance between the meditative aspects and the near-operatic drama of the words from the Lamentations of Jeremiah’ (BBC Music Magazine)» More

Studio Master: CDA68215  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘Few record companies seem to be holding such a candle for Dohnányi’s chamber music as Hyperion … The Nash Ensemble triumphantly surmounts all the technical challenges while projecting absolute enjoyment of and devotion to the music’ (BBC Music Magazine)» More

Stephen Hough's Dream Album
Studio Master: CDA68176  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘It's hard not to be smitten by the first-class musicianship, delicacy and fancy twinkling and winking through the Minkus transcriptions, or the genuine feeling bubbling up in Dvořák's Humoresque, Elgar's Salut d'amour, or Richard Tauber's sentimental hit number Das alte Lied … a sweet album, this, superbly played and recorded’ (BBC Music Magazine)

Vaughan Williams: Mass in G minor & other choral works
Studio Master: SIGCD541  Download only  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘Some performances grip you from the outset, and this St John's College recording of Vaughan Williams's Mass in G minor is one of them … there are fine recordings of all these pieces in the catalogue already. But as a single-disc anthology of Vaughan Williams's choral music this new St John's College CD is formidably attractive’ (BBC Music Magazine)
