Corda Music Publications – To hear some recordings from our editions click on the relevant title(s) below.

These recordings are only intended as a sample, and are of greatly varying quality, made in various different locations and acoustics. Several guitar ensemble items are from recordings with pupils from St Albans High School for Girls. Thanks for your help ladies. Various guitar pieces are either from BackBedRoom Sonics or overseen by the imperturbably patient Alex at Garden Shed Recordings. A few items are from CDs available through Corda Music, including Hearts & Flowers (featuring the inimitable Stephen Tees on Viola), Goethe and the Guitar (featuring Café Mozart), Endearing Young Charms (a Corda Music CD) and Josep i María (featuring members of Galliarda).  Because the website has finite capacity, a selection of other sample recordings can be obtained (free) by emailing your request to Corda Music (see the additional list of music at the foot of this page).
