In commemoration of the 100th year anniversary of conductor Dr. Ralph Woodward’s birth, this new album celebrates the contribution and legacy of this world-renowned conductor and features the BYU A Cappella Choir performing 48 songs that were recorded from 1964–84 as the Woodward took the choir to national and international prominence. Dr. Woodward’s directorship of the Brigham Young University A Cappella Choir began in the fall of 1964 and ended in 1984. Most of these years are represented on this recording. This compilation was drawn from a variety of sources- the primary one being BYU Music Special Collections.

Through the foresight and guidance of the curator, Dr. David Day, printed programs and concert recordings had already been preserved, making it possible to view programs and then locate matching audio files. Fortunately, many tapes were still in good condition. This compilation does have something of an archival feel because of the varied physical condition of source recordings as well as changes in sound engineering techniques and practices over the years. Nevertheless, through the dedication and expertise of the mastering engineer, Troy Sales, these live performances from varied settings and sources have been combined into a cohesive and satisfying whole.

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!
