Limited Edition Vinyl Release
A very special new recording
To celebrate the 80th Birthday of Psappha's Patron, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, we are releasing a brand new limited edition recording of Eight Songs for a Mad King on vinyl.
The recording was made in 2012 and was supervised by the composer. This is the first recording of the work to have had the direct involvement of the composer since the 1971 recording by The Fires of London.
