Notes and Editorial Reviews
2012 marks the 15th anniversary of the first release from the leading independent classical label Signum Records. Beginning life as an early music specialist (with a landmark release of the Complete Works of Thomas Tallis with Chapelle du Roi), Signum has grown since 1997 to a catalogue of over 300 releases across a wide range of genres.

In this Art Song collection we bring together performances from across Signum's catalouge by singers including John Mark Ainsley, Sarah Connolly, Philip Langridge, Felicity Lott, Mark Padmore, Andrew Kennedy, Roderick Williams, Ailish Tynan and Hila Plitmann.
