Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    72:23
When tenor Nicky Spence was first shown the score to The Boy in the Train, the last of Buxton Orr's Songs of a Childhood, he was transported to the late 1980s and his own childhood in Scotland. Something about Orr's sense of humour, excitement and honesty resonated with him and fed his desire to discover more. On contacting Orr's widow, Spence was led to a treasure trove of unrecorded works for voice. Sometimes thrillingly complex and always beautiful, given character and verve by Orr's delightful setting of the Scots language, this rich body of music has finally found a worthy modern day advocate. In his sensitive and intelligent curating of the programme, Spence has brought together artists from Delphian's roster, including pianist Iain Burnside and members of the Edinburgh Quartet.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
