"There is so much vocal colour in this compelling reading. Audio quality is top notch ... a warm, resonant bloom to the sound, particularly sympathetic to highlighting the counterpoint ... will be hard to beat."
- MusicWeb International

Masaaki Suzuki conducts the Bach Collegium Japan on the second volume of Bach's Lutheran Masses; like their companion works, the two masses on this album make wide use of previous compositions by Bach and incorporate reworkings of arias and choruses from his cantatas while still holding their own distinctive mechanisms. Bach did not only perform his own compositions, he also performed works by other composers, including Marco Gioseppe Peranda, whose Kyrie-Gloria mass is featured on this programme. Bach likely performed Peranda’s mass in the latter years of his Leipzig period.

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!
