"... magnificence registered fully in Gardiner’s measured, purposeful interpretation, carried off with a combination of strength and delicacy ..."
- The Guardian

Recorded live at St. Lukes in London in March 2015, Bach's epic masterpiece, the soaring Mass in B Minor, is performed by the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists led by John Eliot Gardiner. This double album is the culmination of their wildly successful European tour and captures the special atmosphere of the concerts.

"I lead a team of musicians who have sung and played this masterpiece together for many years and who know this piece and each other as musicians, inside out. We feel it is important to have a tangible document of this era of the Monteverdi Choir and the English Baroque Soloists ... in which Bach has become a mainstay of our lives as musicians."
- John Eliot Gardiner

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!
