Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    55:59
The Los Angeles Master Chorale is joined by the Calder Quartet on David Lang’s The National Anthems, paired on this album with an updated performance of Lang's 2008 Pulitzer Prize-winning The Little Match Girl Passion. The hour-long programme becomes a unique panorama of the composer's writing process and its evolution in recent years. Taken as a whole, the two works also make a lasting statement about our place in the world we share with each other.

"Both pieces try to use music to show us how we could be or should be better people. The National Anthems scours the anthems of all the countries in the world, hoping to find common ground that might allow us to understand each other, across all our artificial boundaries ... The Little Match Girl Passion is an attempt to ennoble the idea that it’s important for us to notice the suffering of people around us."

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!
