Digital Booklet
"... wonderfully manicured sound, ultra-clear enunciation ... marvellously dramatic delivery of texts and music are wholly winning ... myriad styles and resonances in the music are delivered with aplomb ... required listening for oh, so many reasons!" - Gramophone "Four Stars ... excellently performed, mind-stretching ... all the composers have brought imagination to their works and there are fascinating sounds aplenty, from unusual vocalizations to barbershop nonchalance, traditional Bulgarian singing and cool Medieval beauty." - BBC Music Magazine The Franklin Effect is a set of variations for vocal quartet, focusing on the work of DNA scientist Rosalind Franklin at King’s College in London through four of the college’s current female scientists in collaboration with four composers. The pieces were premiered at King’s College in October 2015 and were recorded in early June 2016 for this album.

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!
