Grammy nomination - Producer of the Year, Classical, 2015

Sacred Songs of Life & Love features some of the most beautiful works in contemporary Scandinavian and Baltic choral music, performed by the South Dakota Chorale under conductor Brian A. Schmidt. Recorded in January 2014 in the grand acoustical environment of St. Joseph Cathedral in Sioux Falls, South Dakota by Grammy-winning producer Blanton Alspaugh, this album testifies to the stature of the South Dakota Chorale as a first-rate ensemble that delivers no less than sublime choral performances.

“We hope this collection will take you through a full range of your human emotions. This music is full of hope, joy, peace and love; we hope it will fill your heart and ears with much of the same."
- Brian A. Schmidt, conductor and artistic director

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!
