"Five Stars ... performances that blend aesthetic nuance with bravura showmanship ... vivid recorded sound adds to the considerable pleasure." - Choir & Organ "... a superb recital that explores a wide range of music. Kitchen has presented a number of new works (possibly to become new favourites?) and some well-established masterpieces. He brings huge flair, understanding, characteristic humour and an intimate knowledge of organ registration and repertoire to this disc." - MusicWeb International Edinburgh city organist John Kitchen has established a hugely popular series of concerts featuring the Usher Hall organ and draws on its repertoire with this glorious celebration of the instrument’s centenary. An evocative recent commission from 2014 British Composer Award winner Cecilia McDowall resounds with the theme of bells and pre-echoes music featuring the instrument’s own extraordinary carillon. Jeremy Cull’s compelling transcription of Hamish MacCunn’s Land of the Mountain and the Flood rubs shoulders with a set of unique Dance Variations on Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and a major work by Bach.

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!
