CRD was founded in 1965 by Graham Pauncefort to import and distribute specialised Continental and American catalogues. As the company grew it was a logical step for CRD to start its own classical catalogue. The company’s first releases were made in 1973. Simon Lawman, who had studied at the Royal Academy of Music, joined the company in 1970, was appointed Artistic Director in 1973 and was responsible for all recordings until his untimely death in 1986.
The distribution and recording activities were split into separate companies in 1974, and the distribution company passed out of the hands of the principals when it was taken over by a European-based investment company in 1978. CRD continues to record interesting and unjustly neglected works, seek out outstanding young artists, and record standard classics where it feels a new approach can be justified.

CRD have earned the gratitude and respect of serious Music-Lovers for their adventurousness of repertoire, discernment in choice of artists, skill in recording techniques and attractive presentation
