Musical Heritage Society


US label
Musical Heritage Society (MHS) was an American mail-order record label specializing in classical music. It was founded in New York in 1962 by Dr. Michael Naida after he left Westminster. After a small initial group of pseudonymous issues licensed from The Telemann Society and Philips, MHS began to issue large numbers of recordings licensed from Erato. Eventually the label issued most of the Erato catalogue, including discs previously issued on several US retail labels. MHS also drew on such catalogues as Library Of Recorded Masterpieces, Hispavox, Somerset, Amadeo, Expériences Anonymes, Boston, Angelicum, Muza, Arcophon, Lyrichord, Da Camera, Supraphon, Pelca, Iramac, Unicorn, Christophorus, Valois and Harmonia Mundi. From the first year, the firm also made a smaller number of its own recordings in New York.

The label was purchased by Passionato, LLC in July of 2011.
