Digital Booklet
"... engineers have provided admirable sonics ... pleasingly performed and well recorded ... a worthwhile addition to Finzi’s discography." - MusicWeb International "... Gilchrist brings musical authority and emotional maturity to bear ... his impassioned eloquence is matched by David Hill’s flexible conducting and really fine playing from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Finzi newcomers should start by sampling the first of the Two Sonnets and prepare to be hooked by this truly outstanding album." - Classic FM This is the second volume of acclaimed Finzi recordings by English tenor James Gilchrist and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra under David Hill. Quintessentially Finzi, the tender yet radiant Dies natalis is a setting of 17th century texts depicting both the first sensations of a newborn baby and life’s tarnishing of the innocence of childhood. In Farewell to Arms, a further example of Finzi’s enthusiasm for 17th century poets, the measured bass and the tenor’s sad, arching melody become a poignant symbol for the brevity of life.

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!
