Digital Booklet
"Five Stars. The programme is a potpourri, one from which emanates the refined scent of the collegiate choir, à la King's or Trinity. The tuning is impeccable, the blend unimpeachable." - BBC Music Magazine Few can argue with Tenebrae's international stature as one of the most competent, versatile, exciting and passionate vocal ensembles in the world today. The beauty of Tenebrae's perfectly blended sound coupled with near-flawless technique is showcased in this recording, featuring a selection of their favourite concert repertoire. Allegri's haunting Miserere is the central point in a journey through music of longing and entreaty, hope and faith. These works by Taverner, Holst, Rachmaninov, Lotti, Ireland, Harris, Briten and Kodály are chosen from the heart of Tenebrae's concert repertoire and span the centuries.

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!
