MP3 — 320kbps

Our MP3s use Constant Bit Rate (CBR). This format is cross-platform and will play correctly on all but the very oldest of portable MP3 players.
ALAC — CD-quality
ALAC files (Apple Lossless Audio Codec, suffix .m4a) are Lossless and offer full CD-quality (16-bit 44.1 kHz); the files are similar in size to FLAC. These Lossless files are supported by iTunes and most other players without the need for conversion.
FLAC — CD-quality
FLAC files (Free Lossless Audio Codec) are Lossless and offer full CD-quality (16-bit 44.1 kHz). Please note
that some media players (including iTunes and Windows Media Player) do not currently support this format, particularly on the PC platform.
We also offer Studio Master ALAC and FLAC
files. These are 24-bit and are available at 96 kHz and 192 kHz. These files are anything up to five times the size of their 16-bit 44.1 kHz equivalents. You should check the documentation of your playback equipment for compatibility with higher bit-rates and frequencies.
Willowhayne Records downloads contain as much additional information ('metadata') as possible. This includes cover artwork and, where available, commentaries, sung texts and translations. Please note, however, that not all media players read all of this information, however, it is all available as complete PDF booklets.
