"Recording of the Month ... beautifully shaped and sensitive readings." - MusicWeb International "... I have no problem recommending this recording for its many complementary virtues ... (those) who are moved by Delius’s transcendant music and by sheer magnificence of orchestral and choral execution and engineering that supports it, will certainly want to hear this ..." - Fanfare This recording presents two relatively rarely heard but striking works by Frederick Delius, both prime examples of his highly individual and groundbreaking use of voices in predominantly orchestral works. The BBC Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Sir Andrew Davis on these thrilling performances, joined by the BBC Symphony Chorus and soloists Olivia Robinson, Christopher Bowen and Andrew Rupp.

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!
