We've tried to make this discography as accurate and complete as possible. This page contains quite a few small graphics; please be patient while it loads.

Many of the discs listed here are available through record stores or, in some cases, on the Internet itself. In North America there are a number of importers who should be able to obtain discs on request.
Abergavenny Music (see below) claim to be able to supply any CD released in the UK. This should include those Guildford discs marked with a green dot. And if you can get to Guildford itself, the cathedral shop keeps stocks for tourists.

NotesThe cathedral choir is also featured on Ian Partridge's disc A Warlock Centenary Album (EMI Classics CDM 65101), which includes the items “Bethlehem Down” and “Adam lay ybounden” from the Guildford disc Christmas Music from Guildford Cathedral.

There are persisent rumours that EMI have from time to time featured items from Christmas Carols from Guildford Cathedral on various compilation CD's, although EMI themselves don't seem too clear about this.
Herald Records can be contacted at: Herald AV Publications, The Studio, 29 Alfred Road, Farnham, Surrey, GU9 8ND, England.

EMI Classics does have a website but it is not possible to order directly through it. You will be told to contact your local dealer. In theory you can search their online database for particular discs.
Abergavenny Music (a CD retailer based in Wales) say they can supply any CD currently on release in the UK. Theoretically, therefore, they can get hold of any of the Guildford CDs marked with a green or orange dot in the Discography above. You can order CDs online, either by sending an e-mail or by filling in a form. At the moment, however, you cannot pay by credit card directly online although they do take credit card orders by e-mail.
You could also try the Surrey Music Store in Woking, United Kingdom. This store is owned by Neil Collins, an ex-Guildford lay-clerk.
There are also that famous old online store, CDNow may (or may not) have Guildford CDís in stock.
