Divine Art

The Divine Art Record Company was founded in 1993 by Stephen Sutton, a solicitor in North East England, and for several years was a part-time venture, until he gave up his legal career in 2002 to run the label full time. Form the start, the label has had two main aims: firstly, to produce recordings of rare, new and re-discovered music of quality, and secondly, to give the performers and (living) composers artistic control.

The first aim has been evidenced by the very large proportion of releases which contain world premiere recordings, even by some of the best known composers.

The second is shown by the fact that all but three of the now substantial catalogue of recordings have been commissioned by artists or composers, rather than by the company. In 1995, this principle was strengthened, by the introduction of the artist-owned" system
