The women of Anonymous 4 revisit their favorite era with repertoire from the Codex Las Huelgas. Spanning the entire 13th century - from virtuosic motets and conductus to heartfelt laments, plainchants and sacred songs - this important manuscript was compiled for a convent of aristocratic Castilian women who (in spite of a rule forbidding Cistercian nuns from singing polyphony) sang some of the most beautiful and demanding music from all across Gothic-era Europe.

Compilé pour un couvent castillan, le célèbre manuscrit de Las Huelgas couvre l'ensemble du xiiie siècle, à travers motets, lamentations et conductus typiques de l'Ars Antiqua. Confié à l'origine à des nonnes issues de l'aristocratie, ces polyphonies habituellement réservées aux hommes et transcendées aujourd'hui par les quatre chanteuses d'Anonymous 4 constituent les plus beaux témoignages musicaux de l'Europe gothique.

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!
