Altri canti d'amor is the debut release from young early music ensemble L'Estro d'Orfeo. Specializing in 17th-century music, they put their best foot forward with this album of Italian Seicento music, bringing together works by Monteverdi, Cavalli, and Barbara Strozzi. In an engaging move, they perform not only instrumental works but instrumental arrangements of vocal pieces, making their instruments sing as beautifully as the human voice. “We... reaffirm the great value and importance that instruments started gaining in the first half of the 17th century, where they ceased serving merely as accompaniments to the voice and gradually became the main protagonist of the musical scene, attaining a level of virtuosity that had never been explored before.” - Leonor de Lera, artistic director of L'Estro d'Orfeo

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!
