Not much is known about English composer John Sheppard but most scholars place his birth between 1515 and 1520. This puts him in one of the most turbulent periods in English church history, something that can be heard on this album in the wide stylistic range he used to adapt to the quickly changing politics of the day. These works, rarely recorded with boy trebles, are performed here by the Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge under the directorship of Andrew Nethsingha. One of the finest men and boys choirs in the world, it has been a cornerstone of the great English choral tradition since the 1670s and is recognized for its distinctive, rich and expressive sound.

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!
