Classic FM Gramaphone Award
Dunedin Consort rewarded at the Gramophone Awards!

Linn Records is thrilled to announce the Dunedin Consort's highly acclaimed recording, Messiah (CKD 285), has won the baroque vocal category at the Classic FM Gramophone Awards 2007.

This is the first time the Dunedin Consort, and the first time Linn Records have been presented with this prestigious honour.

Achieving the award in spite of such tough competition is a fantastic achievement both for the group and Linn Records.   Following the album's release in November 2006 critics hailed it as “the Messiah of choice”, elevating this historically informed recording to monumental status.

John Butt, director of the Dunedin Consort, said, “I'm absolutely delighted that this recording has been so well received.   There was always a risk in trying to recreate something of the spirit of a specific performance, with some unusual versions and a balance of soloists and chorus quite unlike most recordings of Messiah.   But we were exceptionally fortunate in having our very best performers and, of course, the superlative sound and production of Linn.   In all, a tribute to all those supporters who thought it worth sponsoring this recording - their generous hunch has certainly paid off.”

The Dunedin Consort recording of Bach's St Matthew Passion is due for release in Easter 2008.   This recording promises to be as memorable as their version of Messiah.
