Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    63:01
This release presents a selection of songs by Hugh Wood, known for his powerfully communicative and lyrical music, spanning his entire career. These songs are set to poems by DH Lawrence, Robert Graves, Laurie Lee and Lawrence Durrell, exploring themes of youth, love, lust and longing. The DH Lawrence settings contain three poems Lawrence wrote about his days with Frieda in Bavaria and the Isles of Greece, written for and dedicated to baritone Roderick Williams and pianist Iain Burnside, is a compilation of poems celebrating various aspects of Greek life and its people. The earliest works on this recording are the Laurie Lee Songs written when Wood was only in his 20s.

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!
