The The Topping Tooters of the Town comes from leading UK Renaissance wind band The City Musick and explores the repertoire of the so-called “Waits” of 16th- and 17th-century London. A band of musicians including players of instruments like the dulcian, cornett, sackbut, and shawm, the Waits served numerous civic functions such as waking townsfolk on winter mornings and greeting dignitaries as they entered the city. This collection combines these functional pieces with others such as dances and psalm settings, making for a rich and unusual musical offering from these world-class musicians led by director William Lyons.

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!
