Digital Booklet
"Five Stars ... an intensely dramatic reading ... Scott and his magnificent choir capture the fervent writing in all its rich variety, with the basses plunging to the depth of their register in true Orthodox style. Recommended." - The Guardian This is the first in a series of six releases from the internationally renowned Saint Thomas Choir of Men & Boys together with their late, highly celebrated director John Scott, who died in August 2015. Recorded over the course of Scott’s tenure with the choir and available commercially for the first time, the series begins with an inspiring and striking 2008 performance of Rachmaninoff’s Vespers. Scott makes full use of the impressive resources of the acclaimed New York choir to convey the very essence of this atmospheric and deeply powerful music.

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!
