Founded in 1980, Hyperion Records is an independent British classical label devoted to presenting high-quality recordings of music of all styles and from all periods from the twelfth century to the twenty-first. The Hyperion CD Label has been described as íBritainís brightest record labelí. In January 1996 they were presented with the Best Label Award by MIDEMís Cannes Classiques Awards. The jury was made up of the editors of most of the leading classical CD magazines in the world - Classic CD (England), Soundscapes (Australia), Repertoire (France), FonoForum (Germany), Luister (Holland), Musica (Italy), Scherzo (Spain), and In Tune (USA & Japan).

The Hyperion label was named after an altogether splendid figure from Greek mythology. Hyperion was one of the Titans, and the father of the sun and the moon - and also of the Muses, so we feel we are fulfilling his modern role by giving the art of music to the world.

The repertoire available on Hyperion Records, and its subsidiary label Helios (Helios, the sun, was the son of Hyperion), ranges over the entire spectrum of music - sacred and secular, choral and solo vocal, orchestral, chamber and instrumental - and much of it is unique to Hyperion. The catalogue currently comprises over 1400 Hyperion CDs and approximately 80 new titles are issued each year. They have won many awards.

Use this page to search for more specific requirements. Any combination of criteria can be used.

We would recommend keeping your search as simple as possible - this will help in returning the maximum number of results.

The following tips may assist you in your search:
  • Avoid using punctuation marks and spaces when searching for catalogue numbers - all of these are removed for ease of use.
  • Try using just one word in each of the fields you use. For example, only type the surname of an artist rather than their whole name.
  • The keyword box will search the entire database, including all extra information attached to a product. This is best used for very specific words, or for adding an extra word to narrow down your search results.
  • The genre box is useful for wider searching, but is not recommended for specific searches, as not every product has been assigned a genre. Please note that concertos are included under Orchestral and that Chamber includes all small ensembles of two musicians or more.
Please note that we are continuing to add more products to our database on a daily basis. If you cannot find what you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact us and, as long as the product is still available, we will order it for you and send it as soon as possible.
