8 String Religion is a timeless masterpiece by composer/cellist David Darling.

engineer/producer Mickey Houlihan’s nature recordings. It features eight
nature-oriented pieces that evoke the unity of nature, humanity and music.
DXD Digital eXtreme Definition:
Digital eXtreme Definition (DXD) is an audio encoding scheme that was developed
for editing high-resolution recordings because DSD, the audio standard used on
Super Audio CD is not ideally suited for editing. DXD is a PCM-like signal with
24-bit resolution sampled at 352.8 kHz - eight times 44.1 kHz, the sampling
frequency of Red Book CD. The data rate is 11.2896 Mbit/s - four times that of
FIM/LIM DXD CDs have taken this a step further to bring you closer to the
source. Instead of making two or more sample rate conversions as with SACD, FIM/LIM
recorded the source in DXD! The data rate for a DXD mono signal is 8467.2MHz, or
more than 3X the data rate of a typical SACD! Experience the closest you can get
to the original performance in the comfort of your home!
"The space is captured extremely well. And it is not artificially produced, there is real depth, three-dimensional, and the furthest plane is really far away. The attack is slightly rounded just as the contours – but it is perfectly combined with artistic contents, it's just a way it has to be done. David Darling's eight-string cello is incredibly palpable." - Wojciech Pacula, www.highfidelity.pl
