Harmonia Mundi

Described by the New York Times as “one of Europe’s finest independent record companies”, harmonia mundi’s origins date back half a century when, in 1958, a French journalist with connections to the book trade, Bernard Coutaz, decided to found his own publishing house for music. A year later the label had released its first recording, Chants From The Slavonic Liturgy.
