"... to hear the performance was a delight ... this was all so well done ... a glowing entry in the annals of recorded English opera."
- MusicWeb International

"... music that is warm and glowing yet astringent, too ... any lack of studio polish is overridden by the flow conductor Kenneth Woods brings to the score and by the principal singers, especially April Fredrick, who gleams in the title role."
- The Guardian

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!
