John Passion - Dunedin Consort - Herald Scotland
The most rewarding discs often come from the sidelines, however, where the quietly revelatory takes on familiar ground, and there are new outings for unsung repertoire.
Whittling down 12 months of classical releases is a heart-wrenching business, and I have cheated by adding five extra titles at the end. While The Herald takes a special interest in music being made in Scotland, every one of the selection made the cut on merit.
