"... shows Lennox Berkeley at his most beguilingly austere, with quasi-medieval vocal writing ... Rory McCleery's alto solo is outstanding, fastidiously embroidered by chamber ensemble."
- The Sunday Times

"This is a very important disc in that it presents an unjustly neglected English vocal work of the highest quality; furthermore, the performance is superb ... admirers of Lennox Berkeley’s music should put this disc at the top of their shopping list ..."
- MusicWeb International

Music from British father and son composers Sir Lennox Berkeley and Michael Berkeley is combined on this programme from the Marian Consort and the Berkeley Ensemble. Especially notable is Lennox Berkeley’s Stabat Mater, the last of his large scale works to be recorded, receiving its world premiere with this release. The Marian Consort has already issued several albums of early music and the ensemble enjoys a reputation for its versatility performing both a capella and accompanied.

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!
