"... a perceptive choice of repertoire by conductor (and organist) Stephen Farr ... sung with great confidence and accuracy in acoustics that allow just enough air to circulate around the sound."
- Gramophone

"... a most impressive collection of contemporary carols ... superbly detailed, even within this rich acoustic ... outstanding choral contributions ... brilliantly played by Farr ... a magnificent example ..."
- International Record Review

Following universal critical acclaim of their first Christmas album, the Choir of Worcester College, Oxford under the direction of Stephen Farr returns with this second album of contemporary Christmas carols. The collection contains works from a wide variety of celebrated composers including Gabriel Jackson, Peter Maxwell Davies, Lennox Berkeley and Herbert Howells, among many others, with no fewer than nine world premieres. Also featured throughout the programme are the seven O Antiphon Preludes for solo organ by Nico Muhly, performed here by Farr.

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!
