December brings many worlds of celebration as the month unfolds with various holidays and New Year's Eve. Over the centuries a great deal of music has been written for this time of year, but very little has been added to the canon in recent decades. Gordon Getty inspired this collection of delightful new Christmas carols from a group of American composers; these are rich and tuneful recordings of festive and joyous holiday classics delivered by soloists, the Musicians of the New Century Chamber Orchestra and the Volti Chorus.

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!
