Hyperion Records Founder Dies at 71
Filed at 8:57 a.m. ET
LONDON (AP) -- Ted Perry, whose Hyperion Records label explored a wide
range of classical music, has died at age 71.
Perry died Sunday in a London hospital of lung cancer, said Mike Spring of

Perry, who had worked with several record companies in Britain and
Australia, founded Hyperion in 1981 and drove a cab to keep the struggling
operation going.
While driving, he heard a broadcast performance of the songs of Hildegard
von Bingen, the 12th-century German abbess, and contacted the artists. The
resulting 1981 recording, ``A Feather on the Breath of God,'' was a success
and put the company on a sounder footing.

It remained one of the company's best sellers. ``It pays for all my
mistakes,'' Perry once said.
