Grammy Award nomination – Best Choral Performance, 2017

Internationally-renowned chamber choir Tenebrae celebrates British composers with this collection of British part songs and choral works. The album also marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death with selections based on his texts, including much loved pieces by Vaughan Williams and a lesser known set by Herbert Murrill. Perhaps the least recognizable name on this album, Murrill is one of a select group of composers who, through war or poor health, died at a tragically young age and whose music was subsequently neglected during the second half of the century.

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!
