The Portland State University Chamber Choir and Ethan Sperry present a programme of works by contemporary Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds. Interested in the narratives and sounds of religious practices from around the world, Ešenvalds uses a vocabulary that oscillates between sparse and lush and often utilises unexpected instruments such as the jaw harp, on full display in the choral pieces collected here which include The First Tears (based on an Inuit legend), Rivers of Light (inspired by the Northern Lights), A Drop in the Ocean (which commemorates Mother Theresa), and the oratorio Passion and Resurrection.

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!
