Digital Booklet
“Countertenor Daniel Taylor - the ensemble's artistic director - has a sweet, supple voice which complements James Bowman's darker, plangent sound. Lute, viol and harp are sensitively played by Elizabeth Kenny, Mark Levy and Frances Kelly, providing aptly soft voiced accompaniments for this most intimate of repertoires... if this beguiling music is not enough to seduce the ear, Ralph Fiennes's measured, thoughtful recitations surely will. A haunting collection...” - BBC Music Magazine Daniel Taylor and the Theatre of Early Music present Love Bade Me Welcome, a collection of love songs from English composers of the Renaissance such as Robert Jones, Robert Johnson, and John Dowland, enriched by the inclusion of dramatic readings by Ralph Fiennnes of poems by giants of the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods.

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!
