"... a sublime concert of works for chorus and orchestra ... the exquisite gem of the Pavane must surely qualify as one of the most perfect, gently shining five minutes of music ever written ... recorded sound is warm and perfectly balanced, realistically recreating the acoustic of a medium size church ... a great recording: does not beat you over the head but invites you inside its acoustic framework to share its delights."
- SoundStage!

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!
