"... might just be the crowning achievement in the Englishman's long and varied career ..."
- The New York City Jazz Record

Recorded in October 2015 during the Ad Libitum Festival in Warsaw, The Blue Shroud is a large scale work by Barry Guy written for an international ensemble. A tribute to Picasso's painting Guernica, the epic 70 minute composition incorporates techniques from new music, jazz improvisation and fragments of Baroque music. Excerpts of pieces by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber and J.S. Bach are mingled into this intricate creation. Guy also transforms a poem by Irish writer Kerry Hardie into moving songs, beautifully performed here by vocalist Savina Yannatou.

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!
