With Letters, the Chamber Choir Ireland and the Irish Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Paul Hillier bring important writings to humanity in a musical setting. "A Letter of Rights" written in commemoration for the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta (1215) by Tarik O’Regan and Alice Goodman is a cantata in which the musical structure is formed as eight sections separated by short instrumental interludes. Performed by Chamber Choir Ireland and the Irish Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Paul Hillier, recorded in All Hallow’s Church, Dublin on 18-19 January 2018 "Triptych" by David Fennessy is a set of three pieces composed for Chamber Choir Ireland over a period of four years: Letter to Michael (2014), Ne Reminiscaris (Remember Not) (2017), and Hashima Refrain (2018). They are perhaps the expression of a single consciousness in three states of being – anticipation/longing, the absolute present, and finally, looking back. Performed by Chamber Choir Ireland, directed by Paul Hillier, recorded in All Hallow’s Church, Dublin on 4 November 2019.

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!
