"... this is delivery of the highest order, virtuosic, articulate and supple rhythm ... a fine achievement and an extremely satisfying release." - International Record Review "Each choir has its own conductor but the standard is admirably consistent. For the collector, the main point is not that the choirs are young and amateur so much as the numbers involved ... the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain have given a strong reminder of their ambition and quality, if any was needed." - Gramophone "... Delphian’s recordings, made at three separate venues, are all very good, as we’ve come to expect from this label ... a very fine collection which will give much pleasure. The singing is skilful throughout. Above all, the listener consistently feels the commitment and enthusiasm of these young musicians. Obviously, these recordings remind us what a skilled composer for choirs Britten was ... I think (Britten) would have loved this album and that he’d rejoice to know that these young people are being so effectively trained, not just in his music but in the joys of singing." - MusicWeb International The 30th anniversary of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain in 2013 coincided with Benjamin Britten’s centenary, leading to this celebratory double album. Over the course of a year Delphian engineers followed the various choirs and for the first time all eight groups appear on one release: a total of 600 singers and eight conductors recorded in three different venues.The vast range of Britten’s choral output encompasses work to match the character of each of the different choirs. Their vocal discipline, energy and sheer enthusiasm are vividly conveyed.

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!
