Notice on recorded highlights

In order to get a fast download on the Internet, the quality of musical excerpts is highly decreased and it does not reflect the real audio quality level of our CD. The format of these excerpts is MP3 mono at 40Kbits/s (times 35 compression). You can compare the two types of encoding by listening this short excerpt of track 24 without compression, from our CD "Five Centuries ..." (warning : 3Mbytes for 15 seconds !)

and here is the same excerpt with MP3 encoding, low compression ratio (256kbit/s)
