Britten, a capella Having dazzled the critics (Choc de Classica, the German Record Critics' Award) some 16 years earlier with its label debut featuring best-loved twentieth-century English a capella works, the members of RIAS Kammerchor revisit one of their favourite composers, Benjamin Britten – this time, under the direction of the choir's new chief conductor, Justin Doyle. A perfect occasion to discover his new reading of the composer's enchanting setting of poems written in honour of the patron saint of musicians by W.H. Auden (he would later rename them "Anthem for St. Cecilia's Day [for Benjamin Britten]"), alongside other choral settings comprising this glorious album entirely devoted to Britain's greatest twentieth-century composer.

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!
