"... contains a great deal of variety and the sound of each work is clear and pristine. If you love Baroque music, whether you are old enough to remember Alfred Deller or not, you will want to hear this recording.”
- Fanfare

This album is a tribute to Alfred Deller by musicians who have carried on his tradition through major contributions to music both in Britain and around the world. The programme spotlights countertenors James Bowman and Robin Blaze and John Turner and Laura Robinson on recorders, joined by cellist Tim Smedley, guitarist Dave Bainbridge and harpsichordist Ian Thompson. Deller, whose influence cannot be overstated, reintroduced the countertenor voice to the current music repertoire.

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!
