"The choir’s silk-sheen sound brings Poulenc motets to perfection." - South Wales Argus "... offers beautiful performances of these attractive French choral works." - Canberra Times This collection of works by Charpentier and Poulenc is beautifully performed by the St John's College Choir, directed by George Guest. Charpentier's Midnight Mass for Christmas, in which each movement is based on a traditional French carol or noël, has long been a holiday and choral favourite. Also on this programme are the wonderful, unaccompanied Four Christmas Motets and Four Lenten Motets, as well as an independent Salve Regina by Poulenc.

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!
