"(Bayrakdarian's) voice is one of the most engaging and congenial in the world today."
- Ottawa Citizen

Soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian, acclaimed internationally for her glittering accomplishments on both stage and screen, presents a hypnotically alluring collection of Armenian sacred music, a more spiritual aspect of her multifaceted persona. She conceived this project as a heartfelt gift to God for sparing the life of her mother and the entire album is very much a family affair. Her husband arranged the pieces, her brother plays the ceremonial percussion instruments and her two sisters join her to form a vocal trio on several tracks. The spellbinding programme, scored variously for solo and ensemble voices, cello and women’s choir, will take fortunate listeners on a deeply meditative journey of the soul.

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!
