"... captures the sounds of this extraordinary acoustic, with music performed by the Pope’s own choir ... (offers) us the chance to hear these pieces as the composers intended, in Latin and in the surroundings for which they were originally written. It’s a sumptuous sound ..."
- Classic FM

For the first time in history, the Vatican opened the doors of the iconic Sistine Chapel for a studio recording with the Sistine Chapel Choir, the world’s oldest choir. This landmark album reproduces the historic performances of music written for the choir by Palestrina, Lassus and Victoria during the Renaissance. There are also two pieces of Gregorian chant, alongside world premiere recordings of other works. In order to capture the magic, mystery and beauty of this centuries-old music in such unique surroundings, Deutsche Grammophon built a specially constructed studio within the Chapel. The Pope will receive the very first copy of the album.

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!
