UPDATE! To end our 11th year as Colchester Classics we would like to offer you Chandos single CDs at £11*.  That means every single Chandos CD shown on our website, on any printed literature, or social media at £12.25* is now £11* (Offer expires on 31 December 2017). The catch? It’s just for orders sent by post and email.
