"Critics’ Choice ... Järvi proves a most sympathetic conductor with passionate Welsh forces. A heart warming disc."
- Gramophone

"Five Stars ... the BBC National Orchestra gives warmly sympathetic renditions of music which was probably completely unfamiliar to them before the recording sessions ... Chandos sound is excellent."
- BBC Music Magazine

This release features orchestral and choral works spanning the length of Parry’s composing life, many of which are recorded here for the first time, performed by the BBC National Chorus and Orchestra of Wales with soprano Amanda Roocroft under Neeme Järvi. Several pieces on this album have strong ties to members the Royal Family: Jerusalem was performed at the Royal Wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Magnificat was dedicated to Queen Victoria on her Diamond Jubilee and the Te Deum was composed for the Coronation of George V in 1911. The orchestral suite from the incidental music to The Birds features the famous march which was played at the wedding of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip and again as the processional march for the Queen’s arrival at the Royal Wedding in 2011.

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!
