Christopher D. Lewis unites the harpsichord's traditional idioms with progressive and highly personal sensibilities on this selection of works by British composers Sir Lennox Berkeley, Herbert Howells, Gavin Bryars and John Jeffreys. Their music demonstrates a shared fascination with the many different capabilities of the instrument: Berkeley evinces a distinctive French influence, Howells's Clavichord is a series of musical portraits of the composer’s distinguished friends, the Bryars piece is virtuosic yet expressive and Jeffreys offers a delightful tribute to the harpsichord’s lyricism.

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!
