On this recital album, Romanian harpsichordist Alina Rotaru presents Parthenia, the first printed collection of keyboard music to appear in England. Dating back to the the early 1600s, it was masterminded by engraver William Hole who conceived it as a wedding gift to Princess Elizabeth Stuart and Frederick V. Stage plays, musical performances, mock battles on the Thames and fireworks were featured in the festivities which accompanied the ceremony.

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!
