The world-famous euphonium virtuosi and brothers Nicholas and Robert Childs established Doyen Recordings in 1988 with the ambition of offering the music lover quality recordings of the world's finest brass performers. Such has been the success of Doyen in recording the very best of brass music, whether in traditional brass band format, as brass ensembles, dedicated solo albums or in individual composer recordings, that the critics have paid keen tribute to their fundamental philosophy of putting the music and quality first.
World renowned brass bands such as Black Dyke, Brighouse & Rastrick, Cory and Grimethorpe Colliery can be found on the Doyen label along with famous brass soloists like Ian Bousfield, James Gourlay, Richard Marshall, Maurice Murphy, James Watson, Roger Webster and not forgetting the Childs brothers themselves.
The company makes no pretence of only recording serious music. Rather, the emphasis is on music that clearly demonstrates the highest quality, no matter if it is light, jazzy, traditional brass band music or classical transcriptions. Doyen records major brass and wind band championships in the UK and Europe and the 'Highlights' CDs from the European Brass Band Championships and gala concerts are treasured by banding aficionados.
Doyen continues to present recorded performances of extraordinary quality as well as being committed to bringing to a wider audience exceptionally challenging new music from the most talented composers in their field.
