The recording is in a church or cathedral with plenty of reverberation, but the voices are closely miked to reduce potential problems. The first echoes are so strong that sometimes the voices almost appear out of focus.
I find this record "indispensable" because this is the finest recording of mature, male voices I have ever heard, from counter-tenor to baritone. This recording venue was also used on some other Harmonia Mundi LP's. It is also a series of chants, but this time with cantors (soloists) and an "ison" (a basso-profundo harmonic foundation).
I realize that other audiophiles will disagree with some of my choices, but this is inevitable.
FURTHER NOTE: This same vocal group, Ensemble Organum, has another record that is truly unique. The Gregorian chants were the pure, and relatively boring, replacements.
I wanted it to be my guest's final auditory memory. As promised, I have compared the Speakers Corner Reissue of the "famous" (to audiophiles) Harmonia Mundi LP, "La Folia", with the original pressing (and, as well, to the earlier reissue(s) from ATR).
La Folia is not only one of the best sounding records from Harmonia Mundi, it is one of the best sounding LPs ever made by anyone.
Do not forget that LP pressing plants were capable of achieving quiet surfaces more than 50 years ago now, and then for just ordinary simple records, at normal prices.
This is another indispensable LP from Harmonia Mundi.
It consists of Twelfth Century Polyphony from France.
