Sub Ursae can be translated as "under the northern sky". This expression comes from a popular sixteenth-century prayer for the Commonwealth and the king, with a melody by Wacław of Szamotuły (ca. 1520/25–ca. 1560), the most known Polish Renaissance composer and the birst to be published abroad alongside works by the most acclaimed contemporary European composers. The anthem, calling upon Christ to protect the subjects of Sigismund Augustus, could have been sung in times of war and peace by both Catholics and Protestants, by Poles and Lithuanians, joined in the common praise of the splendour of the happy and prosperous land under the sky of the Great Bear (Ursa Major).

The Cracow Singers directed by Basle specialist Agnieszka Budzińska-Bennett and accompanied by Marc Lewon (lute), present the birst ever complete songs of the Renaissance master: Latin motets, Polish monophonic and polyphonic hymns as well as the premiere reconstruction of recently discovered fragments Wacław's Lamentationes, long thought to be lost.

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!
