Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    72:11
"... a delicious 72 minutes of Restoration wit and lyrical charm, performed gracefully ... there are stirring trumpet tunes, one magnificent bass scene and fine solos from rising young singers ..."
- The Times

Harry Christophers leads his ensemble The Sixteen on this performance of Henry Purcell’s The Indian Queen based on Dryden’s play, a classic story of love and war where things don’t go quite as planned for the eponymous Queen. Purcell was a brilliant dramatist as exemplified by this exceptional vocal music full of detail, colour and characterization. His instrumental writing leaps off the page with strings that are second to none and a wealth of variety capped by exquisite trumpets, oboes and recorders.

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!
