Handel and numerous other composers wrote a rich body of work for the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, a popular social attraction for upper-class 17th- and 18th-century Londoners. This release from preeminent early music ensemble London Early Opera is the second in their Vauxhall series and brings together pieces by Handel, Hasse, and several English composers for a unique insight into the popular music of this era, expertly performed by soloists such as Claire Bessent, Eleanor Dennis, and Greg Tassell under the direction of Bridget Cunningham.

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!
