Hailed by The New York Times as "an important new artistic voice" and by Gramophone as "a post-millennial Schubert," Mohammed Fairouz is one of the most significant contemporary composers of vocal music. His oratorio Zabur (Arabic for "Psalms") is a kind of war requiem documenting a conflict’s effects on human beings, most notably children. Though cast in a modern setting, in a city under siege, Fairouz evokes a timelessness, acknowledging tragedy while asserting an eternal, luminous hope that transcends the disastrous present. This world premiere recording features tenor Dann Coakwell and baritone Michael Kelly with the Indianapolis Children's Choir, the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, all led by Eric Stark.

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!
