Total Playing Time    79:01
Mezzo-sopranos Alison Browner and Sharon Carty and pianist Andreas Frese pay tribute to a great art song tradition with this presentation of rarely performed English treasures: songs and duets by John Ireland, Michael Head and Benjamin Britten. The three sensitive interpreters venture deep into the green heart of the isle: the subjects are love, valleys and brooks and, naturally, the last rose of summer.

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!
