Quickening presents a charming collection of songs by British composer Robert Hugill. Uniting four cycles and one stand-alone song, these settings of poems by English and Welsh poets including Christina Rossetti, Ivor Gurney, A.E. Housman, and Rowan WIlliams (the former Archbishop of Canterbury) display Hugill's command of the dialogue between singer and pianist, but also his sensitive string writing, apparent in the title work which features violist Rosalind Ventris. Mezzo-soprano Anna Huntley and pianist William Vann offer up warm and evocative interpretations throughout.

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!
