"The fresh, unforced quality of these young singers brings a pleasant friction to grave-facing works ... rooted in a warmly present bass section, the choral blend is always thoughtfully calibrated."
- Gramophone

This recording includes over 20 spectacular choral works, performed by the exceptional young singers in British ensemble the Rodolfus Choir, drawn from composers spanning over 500 years. Ralph Allwood MBE introduces the programme and the personal inspiration behind it by explaining "the concept of time is so rich that it has inspired a large body of writing and musical setting. This collection is a tribute to my father, because I learnt so much about time from him. Mathematician and philosopher, theologian, musician and physicist, he was fascinated by our perception of time, he and I had many discussions about its nature. In a trivial sense, music traces the passage of time, but also, as with all events, manipulates it. A watch traces a different pattern of time during events. But who is to say that the watch is ‘right.'"

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!
