"Anyone who appreciates first-class vocal ensemble performance will happily hear this–and hear it again and again."
- David Vernier, Classic Today

The program of this album was conceived for Good Friday as well as the Skylark Vocal Ensemble's international debut in London where they wanted to highlight a uniquely diverse blend of American traditional hymns. These hymns are complemented with works by Hildegard von Bingen, Francis Poulenc, and many many more composers dedicated to sacred polyphony for choirs.

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!
