With this album, Björn Schmelzer and Belgian ensemble Graindelavoix invite listeners into the strange world of artistic clashes and ruptures, featuring sacred works by Orazio Vecchi, a composer better known for his secular music popular in Venice. Graindelavoix’s customary uncompromising and clearly provocative vocal sound is complete with both artfully-executed ornamentations and attention to ensemble needs. Schmelzer takes his lead from the funeral rites for Flemish Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens in 1640, which might well have encompassed Vecchi's Requiem Mass as recorded here, to demonstrate the coexistence in Baroque Antwerp of two apparently contradictory, but interconnected facets. One of these facets was the continuing presence of prima prattica polyphony. The other facet was the image of Rubens’s art: full of energy, seductive, optimistic and scintillating, the Northern Baroque par excellence.

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!
