American Baroque ensemble the Consortium Carissimi continues to promote its namesake, Giacomo Carissimi, with this fourth recording of his works. One of the most admired of 17th century Italian composers, Carissimi became famous across Europe at an early age, particularly for his church music. Commonly employing texts that modify or amplify passages from the scriptures rather than taking those texts verbatim, Carissimi used all his talent for vocal melodic lines and accompanying instrumentation to fashion a sequence of spellbinding masterpieces. Foremost among these is Usquequo peccatores which, through its size and length, blurs the very distinction between motet and oratorio.

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!
