Piffaro is a so-called "Renaissance band" from Philadelphia who specialize in bringing to life the rich musical traditions of late Medieval and Renaissance Europe. With Back Before Bach they focus on composers from German and Franco-Flemish areas that preceded J.S. Bach (though that famous composer also gets a look in), presenting numerous arrangements of individual works and thereby offering numerous ways to experience these beautiful early secular and sacred pieces.

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!
