We’re pleased to introduce the Naxos 30 Collections. Each release features a 30-disc boxed set that samples the wealth of music from a particular musical period or genre. Each box is priced competitively, making this series both an extremely attractive introduction to classical music for newcomers, and an interesting collection of classical favourites mixed with lesser-known repertoire.

The Early Music Collection opens the series this month, its mix of vocal and instrumental music reflecting variously on individual composers, genres and periods. Below, you can sample selected tracks and read of other collections that are scheduled for future release.

The Early Music Collection is a wide-ranging survey that traces the history of Western music from plainchant, the music of the Catholic church, through polyphony, to the end of the 17th century. In exploring a period of over half a millennium, it includes the very greatest vocal and instrumental composers, from the 12th-century Abbess Hildegard von Bingen, to the late-Renaissance world of Monteverdi. This essential collection includes many critically acclaimed recordings made by the leading choirs, consorts, instrumentalists and conductors of our time employing the latest historically informed performance practice.
