Digital Booklet
Duration    1h 10m 43s
This album attempts to answer the question: does music add substance to words or is music inspired by them? In a journey covering six centuries of musical history, Harry Christophers and The Sixteen perform a cappella anthems with powerful texts by writers as varied as Edmund Spenser, Christopher Fry and W.H. Auden. Songs of departure and farewell are deeply rooted in the great tradition of British choral music, nourished by ancient myths of testing journeys, wayside transformations and homecomings. This programme invites contemplation of life and death, of love and loss, creation and eternity.

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!
