"Four Stars ... I can think of no performance that has served (these pieces) more affectionately and with such sensibility to Buxtehude’s warmly communicative harmonies ... it is perhaps Peter Harvey who steals this particular show with his beautifully poised and expressively sensitive declamation ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

"This recording is much more than the sum of its parts. Not only are the musicians exemplary and the soloists top-notch, but they meld in such perfection that almost every note on this disc is pure joy ... all the instruments fill the soundscape in an ideal fashion. This is indeed a disc to appreciate through headphones, if possible ... there are no musical pyrotechnics here, just beautiful melodies and lush harmonies ... this is a beautiful recording, full of joy and energy, with some magnificent music making and excellent singing. The entire disc is a pleasure and the ideal balance between the musicians and instrumentalists lets this music come alive."
- MusicWeb International

Early music ensemble the Purcell Quartet are joined by three superb vocalists on this beautifully-recorded presentation of Buxtehude's rare sacred cantatas, the first of two volumes in the mini-series. Sopranos Emma Kirkby and Suzie LeBlanc and bass Peter Harvey have all been highly commended for their roles on this album, as has the Purcell Quartet itself.

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!
