About

Globe Music is a new record label from Shakespeare’s Globe that sets out to capture the intimacy of our candlelit concerts in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. A 17th century-style jewel box theatre, one of the great revelations of the space when it opened in 2014 was the crystalline acoustic that has quickly established it a world class chamber music venue.


Our ambition for Globe Music is to bring together some of the world’s finest musicians in special, unexpected collaborations, to bottle a unique environment where music and the theatrical meet.


Our first release, Songs from Our Ancestors, features two of today’s most imaginative artists; tenor Ian Bostridge and guitarist Xuefei Yang. Their eclectic journey traces a poetic path through history and place that is both global and personal; from Shakespeare’s contemporary John Dowland, through Schubert, Britten and Chinese folk music, to contemporary composers Domenick Argento, Stephen Goss and Chen Yi.
