"... I confess I was a little taken aback to hear Handel’s Let the Bright Seraphim played with these instruments: an extraordinary sound! The playing is superb, the five players producing an excellent consort sound. This is a fascinating little glimpse into a little-known part of musical history." - Early Music Review During the mid-19th century the Distin Family blazed a trail across Europe and North America performing countless concerts and promoting new and exciting designs of brass instruments. Thanks to a chance meeting with Adolphe Sax in Paris in 1844, the group adopted the new valved brass instruments, in particular the saxhorn. On this debut album, period brass ensemble the Prince Regent’s Band recreates the lost Distin Family repertoire with its unique collection of original saxhorns and other fascinating brass instruments of the era.

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!
