Sublime music, captured in vivid sound.

Arranged here in its original liturgical score and played with the sound of a 19th century French Orchestra (which is very distinctive), this is a feast for the soul as well as for the ears. Vivid recording captured in January 2014 in the Chapel of Kings College, presented on a hybrid CD / SACD it warms the hearts of DSD admirers and challenges all who say that SACD’s are no longer issued. Thirty-two 5* reviews on Amazon and listen to samples confirm that this premium priced issue (£11.99 from Kings College online shop) is deservedly worth checking out.
