Digital Booklet
Soprano Sophie Bevan and pianist Sebastian Wybrew present Songs of Vain Glory, a heartfelt program commemorating the anniversary of the beginning of the First World War recording live at London's Wigmore Hall. This wide range of English language songs depicts the excitement and disillusionment experienced by soldiers leaving for the battlefields from Finzi's timelessly atmospheric At a Lunar Eclipse to the melancholic Goodbye-ee.

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!
