Hyperion Records - Much Better than Bungee Jumping
Indie music isn't dead. Hyperion Records is a British independent classical record label that produces wonderful recordings. Described as Britain's brightest record label, they have a surprising knack of producing albums that I want to own. I first dipped into their catalogue with their Henry Purcell recordings. Purcell: The Complete Odes and Welcome Songs is a particular favourite, featuring the wonderful counter-tenor, James Bowman, and tenor Rogers Covey-Crump. James Bowman was also the star counter-tenor for the Handel: English Arias, another favourite.
When I ponder over my ambitions in life, in idle moments usually when I'm meant to be working, I think how nice it would be to own the entire back catalogue of Hyperion Records. That's my kind of ambition. Not for old Tweedy wanting to jump off a bridge connected to a piece of elastic, thank you very much.
