The Orchestra of the Golden Age was formed in 1990 by Robert Glenton and is the only fully-fledged period instrument orchestra based in the North West of England. It performs throughout the country but specialises in bringing original-instrument performances of baroque and early classical repertoire to areas of the North West of England which do not often benefit from such concerts.

The orchestra records for Naxos Records and its first CD, the music by Purcell, was released in March 1996 (catalogue number 8.553444). This CD includes the first-ever recording of a recently discovered unfinished work by Henry Purcell. "The Noise of Foreign Wars". Future releases on the Naxos Label will include Telemann's complete Tafelmusik, Haydn's Nelson Mass and Bach's Easter Oratorio.
