Welcome to Colchester Classics where Classical Music matters!

OUR CD SERVICE – Colchester Classics is a CD, LP and DVD mail order company celebrating 11 years service to those starting their love affair with music, clever collectors, also to music groups and at concerts. We’re as passionate about providing the best service as we were when we started in 2006.

For all enquiries please ring 0800 999 6994, email liz@colchesterclassics.co.uk or click on the Contact Colchester Classics button top RHS of your screen.

OUT and ABOUT – In addition to our mail order service we also pop out of the office with our pop-up CD stand offering CDs at concerts, choirs and festivals often including CD signings with international musicians performing in Essex and nearby Suffolk.

Later this month we will be at The Apex offering CDs and hosting a CD signing on our pop-up CD stand with both international violinist Tasmin Little and eminent pianist Piers Lane.

Tasmin Little kindly commented on our CD mail order service “For anyone who likes a personal service in CDs and prefers to speak to an actual person…. a fantastic service and all you need to do is give her a call.” (FREEPHONE 0800 999 6994)

As you can see on the Right hand side of the screen, we have on-going multi-buys on our most popular CD labels.

As well as all of the above and much more, we also like to offer you some exclusive competitions (see above on the black tab).
