Digital Booklet
"... Niemiński is as dynamic an advocate as could be hoped for in music that requires the player to convey a narrative of emotional and technical complexity and his use of the organ is well judged ... the organ in St Mary's has been faithfully recorded, sounding punchy and articulate." - International Record Review This world premiere recording of Giles Swayne's epic organ work Stations of the Cross from Edinburgh-based organist Simon Niemiński was recorded on the 2007 Matthew Copley organ at St Mary's Metropolitan Cathedral in Edinburgh, where Niemiński is the resident organist. This extensive solo work, released in 2013, is at the pinnacle of virtuosic organ repertoire, with each of the 14 movements representing an episode in the story of the Passion of Christ.

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!
