"These are sensitive performances, a fine organ and good recording quality."
- MusicWeb International

"Niemiński is a dependable guide through some of the backwaters of Stanford’s output and his whole programme is a pleasure to listen to, boasting excellent recorded sound."
- International Record Review

Following his landmark recording of Giles Swayne's Stations of the Cross, organist Simon Niemiński returns with this engaging collection of organ works by Charles Villiers Stanford, the second volume dedicated to the Irish composer. Niemiński performs on the unspoilt 1913 Brindley and Foster organ of Freemasons' Hall in the heart of Edinburgh. Given a full restoration in 2009, this organ provides an ideal vehicle for authentic performances of this music. Included is Stanford's Organ Sonata No. 1, the triumphant Marcia Eroica and two world premieres: The Angelus and the beautifully simple early work Prelude on the Ancient Melody 'Jesu dulcis memoriae'.

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!
