“Carolyn Sampson’s soprano sparkles and Iestyn Davies’s countertenor glides through the air in this compilation, individually and in duet... what’s on offer here is beautifully judged, the two voices playing off each other and sharing nuanced expression.”
- Erica Jeal, The Guardian

“absolutely delicious recording.”
- The Daily Telegraph

Lost Is My Quiet presents an inspired collaboration between soprano Carolyn Sampson, countertenor Iestyn Davies, and pianist Joseph Middleton for performances of a rich collection of solo songs and duets. Opening with Britten's arrangements of individual songs and incidental music by Purcell, these consummate musicians then turn to Lieder by Mendelssohn and Schumann, and complete the programme with a number of refreshing 20th-century songs by Quilter, displaying their exquisite blending and musicianship throughout.

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!
