Digital Booklet
"Four Stars ... words and music weave together to evoke reflections of place and memory, its programme elegantly constructed and beautifully performed ..." - Classic FM "... (these works are) well suited to their impeccably manicured vocal blend, enchanting the ear from first to last note. Signum's sound is warm and close but the acoustic of St. Andrew's gives the music room to breathe." - Gramophone "Five Stars ... a timely reminder of the stunningly high musical standards the singers bring to bear in this kind of unaccompanied vocal repertoire ... delivered with jaw-dropping levels of accuracy and interpretive commitment. Singing of rare distinction, outstanding in its tonal blend of controlled vibrato." - BBC Music Magazine This evocative, spiritual and highly praised album offers some of the best and most requested repertoire from the King's Singers. The five commissions reflect how we are all shaped, perhaps unconsciously, by the landscape and time in which we live. The singers explore the links between human life and its surroundings through the different personal languages of poets and composers.

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!
