"An impressive‚ intelligently programmed debut from a promising young soprano ... (Emily Gray is) like the voice of an angel ... she uses this remarkable instrument with care and taste‚ obviously well­ taught‚ with imagination of her own and a rare ability to hit exposed notes cleanly with no upward slide ... an excellent collection ..." - Gramophone Christopher Stokes leads the Manchester Cathedral Choir, joined by organist Jeffrey Makinson and acclaimed sopranos Emily Gray (making her debut here at only 15 years of age!) and Claire Buckley, on a programme dedicated to music for Lent and Passiontide. Much like Christmas, Lent and Passiontide have provided composers from every generation with a wealth of material to set to music, either drawn from the Bible or associated, directly or indirectly, with the themes of penitence and the suffering of Christ on the cross. This album, recorded in 2002, provides a diverse sample of that music from a wide range of composers and lyricists.

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!
