“Drawing together rigorous musicological research and virtuoso performances, this project impresses and delights… The plangent eloquence and dare-devil bravura of Bruce Dickey’s cornetto playing would charm the skin off a snake, and the other instrumentalists of the ensemble Galatea respond to the music’s sinuous lines with apt gratia e maniera. Set in a glossy church acoustic, the recording is acutely judged, capturing the subtlest details of this subtle art.”
- BBC Music Magazine

Bringing together renowned early music artists Monica Huggett, Bruce Dickey, and founder of the Galatea ensemble, lutenist Paul Beier, Con gratia et maniera introduces listeners to charming but little known repertoire by 16th- and 17th-century Italian composers, performed with delicacy and great virtuosity.

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!
