"For all the Pascal jubilation of the Oratorio, it's the simple, unaffected solace of the Actus Tragicus, however, that steals the show...Gardiner slims down his forces from the 23 voices of the Oratorio down to a dozen."
- BBC Music Magazine

"Gardiner is clearly convinced of its merits and therefore you'll find no greater advocate."
- Gramophone

"Gardiner’s long, in-depth experience of Bach’s music has been manifest over the past decade..."
- The Telegraph

John Eliot Gardiner, with the Monteverdi Choir, lead us on an adventure through Bach's choral chamber music. Gardiner specifically chose this unique all-Bach program to give listeners music to combat grief through his brilliant interpretation of these two contrasting works.

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!
