"One of the world's finest male choirs ... lovely stuff."
- American Record Guide

"Each item has been carefully chosen and is performed to its best advantage."
- MusicWeb International

Formed in 1853, the choir Orphei Drängar has constantly striven to discover and develop new directions for the male choir, while not neglecting its splendid traditions. On this album, Orphei Drängar gives proof of its versatility with a highly varied programme that manages to stay within the theme of Christmas: original settings and fresh arrangements of Swedish folk songs and Christmas classics, English carols and Broadway songs. Supplying even more nuance is the choir's guest artist, young Swedish soprano Ida Falk Winland, as well as a brass ensemble supporting choir and soloist.

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!
