"The sound is spectacular. Brasses are richly characterized and when organ is added for low end foundation, the sense of a large space being acoustically energized is uncanny."
- The Absolute Sound

"If you are a lover of Christmas music: carols, popular songs and all manner of medleys and clever arrangements of such, and you miss this extraordinary recording, your holiday listening stands to be just a bit more dull, less festive and more ordinary than it could have been."
- ClassicsToday.com

The Dallas Wind Symphony and conductor Jerry Junkin present Horns for the Holidays, showcasing a 12-track lineup including original arrangements of festive favourites with many first recordings. This audiophile spectacular also features the huge Fisk pipe organ at the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, faithfully captured here. A treat for wind band enthusiasts, audiophiles and anyone who loves great holiday music.

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!
