The Westminster Concert Bell Choir is composed of students at Rider University’s Westminster Choir College, the first institution in the world to develop such a program. Hailed for its virtuosity, the ensemble performs on the largest range of handbells in the world, spanning eight octaves; many of the bells are made of bronze weighing from four ounces to 11 pounds. The choir also uses the large “Basso Profundo” aluminum cast bells and a six octave set of Malmark Choirchimes, the widest range in existence. This album includes patriotic favourites and American songs and hymns, as well as original works, including Battle Hymn of the Republic and an arrangement of Sousa’s The Stars and Stripes Forever that showcases the choir's virtuosity.

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!
