American organist James B. Welch performs Music for Christmas, recorded live during holiday concerts in 1976 and 1978 at Stanford Memorial Church on a four manual, 70 rank 1901 Murray Harris organ. Welch composed a number of new songs which all received their premiere performances at these concerts, highlighting the tradition of the Christmas season and its wealth of beautiful music. Wilson Audiophile's typical superb engineering presents Welch's organ in warm, full sound.

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!
