Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    69:31
"The performances are beautifully rendered, with just the right balance of formality and fantasy. Collegium Musicum 90’s enthusiasm and affection for Arne’s orchestral works should win him the many new admirers he deserves."
- International Record Review

"... a charming disc of beautifully played and brightly executed performances. Simon Standage nurtures affectionate interpretations and his violin playing still perpetuates the impeccable stylishness and musical taste that made his pioneering recordings so enduring."
- Gramophone

Conductor Simon Standage directs period instrument ensemble Collegium Musicum 90 in a stellar performance of overtures by Thomas Arne. This collection admirably shows the ingenious simplicity of Arne’s writing, very much in the mid-18th century English pastoral school.

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!
