Design: A nice pen calligraphy script logo for the label name, the meaning of which word is unknown.

History:  According to discographer Robert Lyons, "Classical pianist Isabella Wallich started the Delysé label in 1954, [which was] the first record company to be owned and run by a woman.  Rather than compete with mainstream labels, she looked for niche markets, beginning with records of Welsh folk music and expanding into Irish folk, stories for children, sacred music and unfamiliar pieces of classical music." Label scan courtesy of music researcher and collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
