Over the past 25 years Beulah has received many acclaimations.

"The Beulah record label has always been one of the most idiosyncratic, and therefore perhaps most interesting, of reissue marques. While the basic character of Beulah remains the same as in its Compact Disc days, the range of its present catalogue, driven now by the ease of downloading, has been extended in remarkable fashion. Browsing the Beulah catalogue is now rather like being in a 78rpm record shop: there are plenty of recordings of short pieces available to whet your appetite for either repertoire or artist, while at the same time there are numerous full length works available if you wish to consolidate your collection with, for instance, major symphonies. All of Beulah's transfers, as might be expected of a distinguished reissue label, are of very high quality." David Patmore writing in Classical Recordings Quarterly

Beulah at 25

It was August 1993 when the first three Beulah compact discs appeared in the record shops. The first releases were :-

1PD1 Live at the Crystal Palace - recordings made inside London’s Crystal Palace in the ten years before it burnt down in November 1936.

1PD2 Crystal Palace Champions - Winners of the National Brass Band Championships held in the Crystal Palace

1PD3 Sir Henry’s Themes and Variations - recordings made by the founder of the Proms, Sir Henry Wood, and the Queen’s Hall Orchestra.

In those days record companies showed little interest in releasing their mono recordings from the 1950s.

Beulah released the Sibelius Symphonies recorded for Decca by Anthony Collins between 1951 and 1955. This was Beulah’s first success, especially in the USA.

The Decca recordings of violinist Alfredo Campoli were released on 4 compact discs. These found a market in Hong Kong and Japan.

Beulah's first release aimed at the French market came in 1996 with an album of Eduard van Beinum conducting Berlioz.

In 2009 Beualh issued The World of Dennis Brain including tracks never previously released. It was to be Beulah’s last compact disc release.

From 2010 onwards Beulah was to become a download and streaming only label. At that time the main downloading site was iTunes. Sales were initially modest but it did enable us to release many more albums as we no longer needed to hold physical stock.

Now streaming , principally at Spotify, out ranks downloads. Beulah has over 300 albums available in classical, jazz, light music, folk, brass and military genres.

To mark Beulah’s first 25 years  we have released a a celebratory album that can be downloaded or streamed in full 16bit 44.1kHZ from qobuz

New for November

Many music lovers miss the sound from vinyl pressings. Many others have yet to discover how pleasant the sound can be. Most of our albums are mastered from vinyl LP pressings and earlier recordings (before 1953) from 78 rpm discs. It is our ability to recreate, in the digital age, the sound from the disc era that many of our customers find most enjoyable.

Unlike modern digital recordings tracks in our albums do contain some distortion, and the occasional surface noises, but for many listeners these "defects" are soon forgotten.

Our albums are available from many download and streaming sites.

We highly recommend downloading from qobuz where you can download or stream in high quality, for the same price as iTunes medium quality.

What the Critics Say

"Though I enjoyed hearing Paray’s recordings, ultimately if you are looking for Schumann recordings of this vintage my preferences lie with Bernstein and Szell, both still sounding well. Not quite one of the many great successes of Beulah, then. "

" Some of those manifold great successes of the Beulah catalogue are contained on a special release: Beulah at 25. It’s that many years since the release of their first CDs, some of them still available but mostly subsumed into the downloads which are still being produced regularly. Of course, a single CD-length offering can’t possibly contain all the goodies – surprisingly there’s nothing from the Anthony Collins Sibelius symphony recordings with the LSO, abandoned by Decca despite their being the chosen versions of my university friends on Ace of Clubs. Though Decca have now rescued them on their Australian Eloquence label, the 4-CD Beulah box set is well worth having (14PD8 – reviewreview of earlier separate releases). So, too, is the CD of shorter Sibelius works in performances directed by Collins and Eduard van Beinum (6PD8). I must also mention Beulah’s release of Pierre Monteux’s 1958 account of the Sibelius Second Symphony with the LSO (with Violin Concerto – Jan Damen and Eduard van Beinum, 1953 – and Lemminkäinen’s Return – Thomas Jensen, 1953) my Reissue of the Month in 2013.

RAF 100

The Royal Air Force was formed on 1 April 1918. By the second world war it had massively expanded so in 1941 the Air Ministry sent a set of records to every RAF station entitled Music for Service Occasions.
