"emotions are strongly communicated, especially in the second setting of Requiem aeternam, where soft notes thrum in the bass register, and the central climax swells organically upward."
- BBC Music Magazine

"While the Gloriæ Dei Cantores recording is far superior in terms of sound and depth, they also bring an unencumbered and tradition-free approach to the music giving it more passion than is often heard."
- Audiophile Audition

"a big, thrilling sound that sweeps the listener up in an exhilarating cascade of vocal glory, abetted here by the excellent organ playing of James Jordan... a valuable and welcome addition to the composer’s discography, and to the collection of any Howells aficionado..."
- Fanfare

In the vast choral repertoire of the 20th century, the music of Herbert Howells stands apart with its moving expressivity and the range of colour it explores. Gloriae Dei Cantores pays tribute to Howells's gift of music to the church and the world with this highly acclaimed collection of choral works beloved on both sides of the Atlantic.

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!
