"... a terrific record of terrific music. The Central Band of the RAF is on top form, which is saying a lot, especially in such technically demanding and rhythmically challenging music ... consistently brilliant ... sound quality is totally splendid ... it is impossible to imagine finer performances than these ... enthusiastically recommended!" - ClassicalSource.com This recording from the Central Band of the Royal Air Force, conducted by Wing Commander Duncan Stubbs, features some of the greatest British pieces in the repertoire by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Gustav Holst, Percy Aldridge Grainger, Ernest Tomlinson and Gordon Langford. The first military band broadcast on BBC Radio and the most frequently featured on the airwaves today, the Central Band of the RAF is at the forefront of military band and contemporary wind ensemble recording.

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!
