Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    79:41
English soprano Susanna Fairbairn is joined by pianist Matthew Schellhorn for this collection of art song by 20th-century composers Geoffrey Bush and Joseph Horovitz. Bush was a British composer who stood as a conscientious objector during the Second World War due to his pacifist and religious convictions, and this release features such delights as his 3 Songs of Ben Jonson and archy at the zoo (told from the perspective of a cockroach), while Horovitz's contributions including the scena Lady Macbeth—a sparse and dramatic setting of moments from Shakespeare's play—which is counterbalanced by interludes such as the cheeky Foie-gras, performed with appropriate colour and character by Fairbairn.

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!
