"... Contrapunctus is the ideal group for this superb repertoire."
- Early Music Review

British early music consort Contrapunctus returns for the second release in a series centred on the Baldwin partbooks. John Baldwin was a member of the choir of St George’s chapel, Windsor and his transcriptions during the 1570s and 1580s constitute one of the greatest surviving collections of Marian polyphony, composed during the reigns of Henry VIII and Mary Tudor. This volume explores texts celebrating the Virgin and her child; Mary as mother of God. Led by Owen Rees, Contrapunctus couples passionate interpretations with authoritative insight and understanding.

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!
