Founded in 2008 by musicologist Pascale Duhamel, Ensemble Scholastica is a Montréal-based female vocal ensemble specializing in medieval plainchant and polyphony. Ars elaboratio features original elaborations on medieval liturgical songs chosen from the plainchant repertoire in homage to the group's favourite saints: Scholastica, champion of education, Cecilia, patron saint of music, Catherine of Alexandria, champion of justice and female wisdom and Saint John the Baptist, patron to the ensemble's home province of Québec. "We study and sing from medieval manuscripts, but not only in the name of 'authenticity.' We wish to share with listeners the true beauty and intricacy of medieval music, in particular medieval liturgical traditions, the very roots of Western music. Our audiences thus have the chance to experience the remarkable joy and complexity of medieval spirituality and culture." - Ensemble Scholastica

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!
