One of the world's most respected early music ensembles, The Sixteen here present Royal Welcome Songs for King James II, a collection of instrumental and vocal works by the English master, Henry Purcell. In addition to lighthearted pieces such as the catchy True Englishmen Drink a Good Health and the harpsichord piece A New Scotch Tune in G Major, Z.655, this album features two major ceremonial works—Ye Tuneful Muses and Sound the Trumpet, Beat the Drum—pieces which overflow with courtly drama.

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!
