“Gilchrist conveys affable nonchalance in the early stages ... aptly characterises Jephtha's deepening emotional responses to the unfolding tragedy ... the orchestra play excellently.”
- Gramophone

Renowned for their Handel interpretations, Harry Christophers and his award-winning ensemble The Sixteen adds to its glittering catalogue with this recording of Jephtha. The last oratorio Handel wrote, Jephtha is often seen as his most profound; the portrayal of Jephtha's suffering is particularly noteworthy for its astonishing sincerity. The Sixteen is joined on this 2014 release by a stellar cast of soloists including James Gilchrist and Susan Bickley, among others.

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!
