In addition to the symphonic works for which he is widely known, Edward Elgar also wrote for military band—perhaps no surprise for the composer of Pomp and Circumstance, which feature in two arrangements on this release. This recording from the London Symphonic Concert Band features several of those pieces, including premiere recordings of With Proud Thanksgiving and The Queen Alexandra Memorial Ode, which are paired with works from Elgar's contemporaries Vaughn Williams and Thomas Beecham.

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!
