Praise for Buxton Orr’s Songs

On the eve of its release, Nicky Spence and Iain Burnside‘s Buxton Orr: Songs has garnered glowing praise from The Herald. Commending both the ambition of the project itself, and the performance and recording standards, Keith Bruce writes:

‘Without making it sound like missionary work by Scotland’s ridiculously prolific Delphian label, this is a very important release. Dumfries-born tenor Nicky Spence is the first singer to record a whole album of the songs of Glasgow-born composer Buxton Orr (1924-1997), who taught at the Guildhall and whose other compositions include the soundtrack of the 1959 film of Tennessee Williams’s Suddenly Last Summer, starring Elizabeth Taylor. The diversity of his art songs is quite astonishing… a superb showcase for Buxton Orr.’
