"... pride of place goes to the present offering not least for its spectacularly superior sound transparently capturing the stillest moments in a spaciousness gorgeously, gloriously, tumultuously filled at the climaxes."
- Fanfare

"... (distinguishing this recording is) the conductor's inspired handling of each part's central dance panels. Hickox makes you believe in them, with a judicious drive, lift to the rhythms, and really incisive, eager singing and playing."
- Gramophone

The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra presents these two works by Delius on this classic double set, recorded in 1996. The orchestra is conducted by Richard Hickox and joined by a cast of wonderful solo vocalists, the Bournemouth Symphony Chorus and the Waynflete Singers on this album, only the third commercial recording of A Mass of Life and the only modern version.

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!
