Delphian Records

Delphian Records

Delphian Records is a small Edinburgh-based independent classical record label founded in 2000 by two students of the University of Edinburgh, Paul Baxter and Kevin Findlan with start-up funding from two private individuals and support from the Princes Scottish Youth Business Trust.

The label has had a special focus on chamber and instrumental music and is particularly involved in the recording and promoting of new music. Following a substantial grant from the Scottish Government[1], the label released its first part-orchestral record in 2008 with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Garry Walker.

Notable artists on Delpian's roster include: Michael Bonaventure, Gordon Ferries, Robert Irvine, John Kitchen, Simon Smith, David Wilde, The Choir of Gonville and Caius College/Geoffrey Webber, National Youth Choir of Great Britain/Mike Brewer OBE and Laudibus/Mike Brewer OBE.
