I found Tallis Scholars's digital albums available on Hyperion web site. Is Gimell a part of Hyperion? It seems Hyperion does not provide download of their albums at any other mp3 stores.
    I'm going to include a few links here. Gimell is it's own company. It's distributors in the USA are Hyperion, but you can go right to Gimell and purchase and download (glory be to God, actually with the disc booklet!!!!).

    Gimell.com http://www.gimell.com

    Their "About Us": The first Gimell recording was made with The Tallis Scholars on March 22nd and 23rd, 1980, in the Chapel of Merton College, Oxford. Single-artist labels have become commonplace in recent years: Gimell was the first, predicting the trend by at least a decade. This gave Peter Phillips and Steve Smith a head-start both in the technique of recording a cappella singing and in gaining irreplaceable experience with a single repertoire and one artist. This experience is unique and enduring, informing every one of the 50 discs and more which Gimell has produced.
    Gimell and The Tallis Scholars together have devoted their careers to bringing a highly characterised ensemble 'sound' to the public through the greatest unaccompanied choral music. This has only been possible as a result of constantly refining and perfecting the raw materials which make up that sound. The result, built up over many years, has been a world-wide market for both their recordings and their concerts, now acknowledged as one of the UK's most impressive exports in the arts. Through their award-winning recordings and 2,000 concerts, Peter Phillips and The Tallis Scholars have done more than any other group to establish the sacred vocal music of the Renaissance as one of the great repertoires of Western classical music.
    Gimell has a number of other firsts to its name. In 1984 it placed the first commercial order for Compact Discs with a UK manufacturer; in 1987 it won the Gramophone Record of the Year Award - the first independent label to receive this prestigious award; and this website, in April 2008, was the first to sell audiophile-quality 5.1 Surround Sound downloads in the FLAC format.

    Their distributors: http://www.gimell.com/musicstore-distributors.aspx

    Thanks for this tip, I would like to explore a bit more of this music.

    You've got it! I have it started up, here is the link:
    The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

    Anyone else is free to post albums they've seen on there, or ask questions if they are looking for something and haven't found it

    Fantastic! I needed that. It seems very rare that a supplier bothers with the CD Booklet for mp3 downloads.

    I find searching for Prime Music on the mobile app very simple, as that is the default search mode.

    Check out various charity/thrift shops. Some have a very splendid collection of classical works on CD, and in good condition most of the time. These are usually donated by family of a person who had a large collection at one point or another.

    German Amazon has a CD sale - three titles for 12* euro (they also ship to the Netherlands e.g.). Many double CD's from top labels, each counting as one title. I picked up 12 titles, over 20 CD's for 36 euro (free shipping). This included some alternative recordings off works I already had (like Mavrinsky's Tchaikovsky 4-6, Abbado's Mahler 3), works I did not have at all (Reich's drumming, Mendelssohn's Elias), and a number of pop/rock albums.

    * it states 15, but for a short period it is actually 12.
    I treat my music like I treat my pets. It’s something to own, care about and curate with attention to detail. From a blog by hjr.

    Haydn Keyboard Sonatas Vox Download $.99 on Amazon. (When we talked about the Festetics Haydn String Quartets someone also recommended the Vox Set, well here is the Vox keyboard pieces.)

    Would someone please tell me how you paste in a link without revealing your Amazon personal account info? If I copy the link when I have my account open can everyone see it? TY

    Just "dp" and the following code are needed.

    Code:
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CVHEIVW
    Even the album title like this is not needed.

    Code:
    https://www.amazon.com/Bach-Complete-Organ-Works-VoxBox/dp/B00CVHEIVW
    BTW, that is another great bargain from VoxBox, Bach's complete organ works by Walter Kraft for $0.99. I think the playing is very good.

    Agree about the merits of Kraft in Bach.

    Ditto on the Kraft. Walcha, Murray, Biggs and others outdo him on individual works both in performance and sound, but it's great to have everything. One of the best bargains around.

    One of the best steals I've found is Rachmaninov's complete orchestral music with Leonard Slatkin and the St. Louis Symphony - great sound, better than average performances, and an absurdly good deal to boot. I'm really starting to love these Vox Box sets. I've gotten music that I never would have thought twice about purchasing but for 99 cents, I can do that.
