    voices go to work on these meaty scores

    meaty
    2. : rich in matter : furnishing solid food for thought or appreciation : substantial
    uncommonly fine voices go to work on these meaty scores Douglas Watt
    (Webster's Unabridged 3)

    Explain to me please as far as possible (without context) what the purple phrase could mean.

    Thanks.

    Re: voices go to work on these meaty scores

    Sorry. I had not realised that it was a dictionary definition that did not provide more context. Think of meaty (furnishing solid food for thought or appreciation) musical scores, the written forms of musical compositions, that provide the potential for people with really good voices to produce wonderful sounds.

    I'm sure you will have noticed users being asked not to post "Thank you" messages as it shows up as a new post and then we waste time going to read a post that has no useful content. We advise them simply to Like the post they found helpful. You could have done the same to show your agreement with 5jj's response. Learners would take that as a sign that you liked it and agreed with it and it wouldn't have added another post to the thread needlessly. For future reference.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
