"Kozená sings superbly here, proving herself as flexible stylistically as vocally."
- Gramophone

"This album finds Kožená in church rather than the concert hall, bringing new colours to three centuries of song ..."
- Sinfini Music

"... it feels like light is suddenly pouring into the church windows ... an unusual but musically varied and very enjoyable album."
- ClassicalDaily.com

Czech mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kožená is joined by virtuoso organist Christian Schmitt on this 2014 release of deeply-felt interpretations of sacred songs for voice and organ. The album includes a selection of religious music from the Baroque to the 20th century by composers including J.S. Bach, Schubert, Dvořák, Bizet, Verdi and Ravel. Music is featured from the spiritual traditions of Germany, Austria, France, England and Kožená's native Czechoslovakia.

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!
