Chamber choir Schola Cantorum from Reykjavík delivers a selection of expressive works for choir from the 20th and 21st centuries which interpret grief and bereavement in the light of hope and comfort. Among the presented pieces, some recorded live, are John Tavener’s simple but stirring The Lamb, Eric Whitacre’s unearthly Lux Aurumque and two of the most beautiful Icelandic choir pieces ever written: Jón Leifs' Requiem for the young daughter he lost and Thorkell Sigurbjornsson’s Heyr himna smiður ("Hear Heaven’s Maker").

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!
