Digital Booklet
“BIS continues its exploration of Sibelius's complete works and in this issue brings us some music that will be new even to dedicated Sibelians. Osmo Vänskä gets excellent results from the Lahti Orchestra and the Dominante Choir. The BIS recording and the notes by Andrew Barnett are excellent.” - BBC Music Magazine “Enthusiastic choral singing and excellent sonics round out an unusual and illuminating release that Sibelius lovers surely will enjoy.” - ClassicsToday.com Known by many for his symphonic masterpieces, Sibelius also wrote a significant body of choral music which often drew on the local traditions of his native Finland. Many of the works presented here were written to mark specific occasions and include chorales, a cantata, a hymn, and a processional march, all performed by the Dominate Choir and Lahti Symphony Orchestra with soloists Helena Juntunen and Juha Hostikka, conducted by Osmo Vänskä.

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!
