Jens Harald Bratlie

Notes:

We are pleased to announce the availability of this release in DSD 64, DSD 128 and DSD 256, as well as the original DXD recorded release.  These higher resolution DSD bitrates were produced from the original DXD recording using a Pyramix Digital Audio Workstation by NativeDSD Mastering Engineer Tom Caulfield.

The sonic advantage to these new Stereo DSD 64, DSD 128 and DSD 256 releases, as with all higher DSD bit rate releases, is the wider audio frequency passband prior to the onset of modulation noise.This results in allowing the listener’s DAC to use gentler and more phase linear filters for playback of the music.

Producer: Morten Lindberg
Recording Engineer: Beatrice Johannessen
Recording location: Sofienberg Church, Norway January 2016
Recording Type & Bit Rate: DXD
