News: CD sales and distribution awards

The Sixteen's recent performances of their Choral Pilgrimmage Queen of Heaven at Llandaff, Truro and Exeter Cathedrals were all sold out. As the group pre-records the programme for the Choral Pilgrimmages and sells the Cd's at concerts, this means that the enthusiasm of the audience has enhanced sales of the Queen of Heaven Cd and put it back into the No. 1 spot in the specialist classical charts. Also the group's new Palestrina disc, volume 4 of their Palestrina edition has popped straight into the chart at no. 4.

In another welcome piece of news,distributor harmonia mundi has been given the title of Best Distribution Company for 2012-13 in the annual ICS Awards. The ICS is a UK-wide association of Independent Classical CD retailers, so the award is recognition of the distributor's standing with retailers in the rather beleaguered CD retailing market.
