In quest of the (Baroque) Indies. The subject, synonymous with exoticism in Europe in the Golden Age, pits Aztecs against Incas on the stage: Purcell died before finishing the music, but what he left to accompany this staged entertainment is nonetheless a swan-song of exceptional beauty.

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!
