A synthesis of Olivier Messiaen's innovative compositional style, La Nativité du Seigneur (The Birth of the Saviour) is rich in colourful harmonies and precisely noted but flexible rhythms, many derived from Hindu tâlas and from the metre of Gregorian chant. This musical commentary on the Christmas story from organist Tom Winpenny is divided into nine movements evoking timeless grace, beauty, radiance, exhilaration and majesty.

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!
