Musicians and producers who have recorded at the National Centre for Early Music have said:

'NCEM is the perfect space for recording chamber music: with plenty of space, and a warm acoustic that is clear without being clinical.  The sound-proofing is effective, and there are (importantly!) plenty of good places to eat and drink nearby.' 
John Bryan, Rose Consort of Viols

'The Centre was the perfect recording venue for me. The space has a gorgeous natural acoustic and plenty of versatility for trying out different set-ups, plus it has all the things that a historic venue doesn't usually come with - mod cons! Kitchen, bathrooms, office and temperature control.
Pamela Thorby

The Centre is really an excellent venue for recordings, and I'm sure it will find itself on the hit list for most British recording companies.
Ashley Solomon, Florilegium

'The facilities for recordings are excellent and the centre is run by helpful and professional staff. It is a calm, comfortable and uplifting place to work.
Patrick Naylor, Deux-Elles Classical Recordings, Recording for Matthew Wadsworth

'I use the National Centre for Early Music because of its good acoustic. It is also a very flexible space allowing us to come and go as we please and leave our equipment set up. Its convenient location, with good rail links, makes it easy for us to get artists here from London.'
Philip Hobbs, Linn Records
