Lyrita has concluded arrangements to buy Cameo Classics from its founder David Kent-Watson who concentrated on recording the works of neglected composers. Cameo Classics is now owned by The Lyrita Recorded Edition Trust which was founded by the late Richard Itter to continue his life’s work recording and promoting British Classical Music through the Lyrita label. The Lyrita Recorded Edition Trust will operate Cameo Classics alongside the Lyrita label. Cameo Classics had released several important premieres of works by British composers several of these recordings will be recompiled for immediate issue on the Lyrita label. The remaining Cameo titles will be represented alongside a new release programme drawn from the non-British material contained in the Itter Broadcast Collection. This release features premiere recordings of works by Arthur Somervell, Cyrill Scott, Maurice Blower, Frederick Kelly, and many other prolific yet too often neglected British composers.
