"... I was very, very impressed by this recording."
- Radio-Canada

Meine Seele ("My Soul") by Canadian countertenor Matthew White breathes new life into sacred cantatas by German composers. This recording features forgotten works by such 17th-century German masters as JS Bach, Franz Tunder, Philipp Heinrich Erlebach, Rosenmuller, JM Bach, Christoph Bernhard, Muffat, and Schutz. The album was recorded at the Eglise Saint-Augustin, Mirabel, Quebec in November 2011.

"As the booklet reminds us, music was very important to Martin Luther. It was 'a gift of God,' he wrote in 1530. It should be central to education: 'A teacher must be able to sing; if not, I don’t think he’s any use.' Luther’s views account, at least in part, for the centrality of music in the Lutheran tradition. The tradition culminated with Johann Sebastian Bach, but he was able to build on at least a century of earlier 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!
