American soprano Leontyne Price, the winner of 19 Grammy Awards and many other awards and honours, recorded three albums of spirituals between 1961 and 1970. Most of the songs on this remastered collection are taken from the earliest of the three and feature African-American conductor Leonard De Paur leading the orchestra. The final eight tracks are Christmas songs Price recorded with acclaimed conductor Herbert von Karajan and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Originally issued under the title A Christmas Offering in 1961, the album was later retitled and rereleased as Christmas with Leontyne Price.

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!
