Craig Armstrong and Calum Martin release their new album, The Edge of the Sea, featuring Gaelic psalm singing with a congregation from the Outer Hebridean Isles of Lewis and Harris uniquely performed and recorded with the Scottish Ensemble. The Edge Of The Sea calls softly to mind both the ever-changing island landscape and the emotive history of the ancient knowledge of Gaelic psalm singing. The recording took place at the stunning acoustic space at Dundee Caird Hall with the Scottish Ensemble, conductor Cecilia Weston, guest violin Duncan Chisholm and the congregation curated by Calum Martin from Lewis and Harris featuring solo voice by Isobel Ann Martin and Calum Iain Macleod . The live recording is by award winning (Grammy, BAFTA, Classical Brits) Floating Earth engineer Mike Hatch. “Gaelic Psalm Singing has long been a very important tradition in the canon of music in Scotland. It is a uniquely Scottish 'Sean Nòs' old vocal style, which has been nurtured in its natural environment of family worship. This unique traditional vocal style is sadly facing a real danger of disappearing for good and we see this unique recording as an opportunity to both archive and introduce a new audience to the tradition with a strong sense of its history and future at its core.” - Craig Armstrong

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!
