London-based early music group Spiritato presents the world premiere recording of Daniel Purcell's opera The Judgment of Paris on this 2014 release. Purcell here demonstrates an endlessly inventive and innovative style in a bold attempt to create a school of all-sung English opera. Spiritato is joined on this album by director and harpsichordist Julian Perkins and the Rodolfus Choir, while the roles of the five protagonists are superbly brought to life by Anna Dennis, Amy Freston, Ciara Hendrick, Samuel Boden and Ashley Riches.

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!
