"... offers some fresh thinking on some old favourites, sung with admirable clarity by the Danish National Vocal Ensemble, supported by some scurrying descants from the woody-toned recorders of Michala Petri." - The Guardian "Everything about this release is perfect: the purity and precision of the choral singing, the traditional but never hackneyed selections, the total lack of arranger-perpetrated bombast and cleverness that can afflict such enterprises, the charming addition of the recorder in descant, the extraordinarily open and natural sound and the attractive presentation." - Fanfare Recorder player Michala Petri and the Danish National Vocal Ensemble present timeless Christmas melodies, both the instantly familiar and the less well known. Composer and arranger Michael Bojesen has selected hymns and carols from across the centuries and around the world, adding a touch of extra holiday joy with the soaring descants of Petri's recorder, shining brightly like the star atop a Christmas tree.

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!
