Digital Booklet
"The Etheria Vocal Ensemble … sing exquisitely in this lovely program that straddles the line between the sacred and the secular. The engineering is excellent." - American Record Guide Containing several world premiere performances, Hymn To The Dawn is an fascinating blend mostly uncommon works for female choir by Gustav Holst, Amy Beach, Josef Rheinberger, Felix Mendelssohn and Giaochino Rossini. The trebles-only Etherea Vocal Ensemble is perhaps the most unusual mini-choir of its kind, consisting of eight voices, seven females and one male. Versatile keyboardist Alan Murchie and acclaimed harpist Grace Cloutier provide the accompaniment.

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!
