"…sympathetic accounts… Butterworth's Two English Idylls, The Banks of Freen Willow and the sublime Shropshire Lad rhapsody. Tension levels rise markedly for exceptionally insightful readings of Howells's Procession, Merry-Eye Elegy (an extraordinarily rapt display) and lively 1949 diptych Music for a Prince (these last three with the NPO). Warlock's An Old Song and Patrick Hadley's gorgeous One Morning in Spring (written in 1942 for Vaughan Williams's 70th birthday) complete the feast."
- Gramophone

"...a welcome sample of the work of a highly discriminating composer. Merry-Eye offers some lively and attractive invention...Supreme performances and recording, with an outstanding coupling of Butterworth's items."

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!
