Digital Booklet
"Impeccably judged interpretations, executed with equal skill." - Gramophone The church music of Victorian England has always retained a secure foothold; not so the secular part-songs recorded here. Written to complement the Elizabethan madrigals which were then being rediscovered and performed, an unjustly neglected corner of the English vocal repertoire is revitalized by Rupert Gough and Royal Holloway Choir.

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!
