"Crystalline beauty ... every voice part is constantly alert to the expressive possibilities of the music and crafts it all with care and musicality ... youthful, festive joy ..."
- Sinfini Music

"The programme has been shrewdly chosen and though it includes a sprinkling of familiar pieces there is a pleasing amount of music that is less well known. More pleasing still, all the latter pieces prove to be well worth hearing. It is probably superfluous to say that the performances by Tenebrae are top class, but they are."
- MusicWeb International

Award-winning choir Tenebrae celebrate the holidays under the expert direction Nigel Short with this sumptuous collection of carols, hymns and other works, both old and new. This programme, a breath of fresh air at Christmas, heralds the extraordinary talents of some of the most dedicated and less well known figures in English choral music.

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!
