The Neoromantic music of Richard Faith demonstrates compositional skill, craftsmanship and moments that transcend sentiment, yet it is clearly human and at certain points unavoidably sentimental. Perhaps Faith’s ability to strike a balance between these two poles of expression is what many performers and audiences have found to be so alluring about his works. Throughout Faith’s career there was pressure to write material that perhaps distanced him from the academic establishment, yet he persisted and holds to his unique voice at the age of 90. His compositions Divertimento and Quintet were written for the Woodsmusick Ensemble, a family of professional musicians that has been performing together for more than 25 years, but only under its current moniker and instrumentation since 2012.

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!
