"... singers James Gilchrist and Adrienne Murray are superb. The composer is a remarkably sympathetic pianist and flautist Michael Cox brings a magic to the two song cycles that include an obbligato ... the Cavaleri Quartet gives a well-balanced and convincing performance ... a worthy disc of attractive music that demands to be explored slowly."
- MusicWeb International

This album of music by David Dubery showcases tenor James Gilchrist and mezzo-soprano Adrienne Murray, two of Britain's foremost singers, presenting a range of songs on texts by Douglas Gibson, William Shakespeare and Walter de la Mare, many with an obbligato flute line. They are joined by flutist Michael Cox and the composer himself on piano on these songs. To close out the programme, the Cavaleri Quartet performs the Cuarteto Iberico, based on Spanish inspiration and locations.

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!
