Is this a new recording?

To answer my own question, no, it isn't.

It's somewhat encouraging in the current situation that a recording initially released on SACD gets reissued on SACD and not only on CD, as happens with other labels.

This is very enjoyable...

Okay... but the original seems to be available still. What is the difference between
HMU807384 Rachmaninov: All-Night Vigil - Paul Hillier and
HMU807504 Rachmaninov: Vespers, All-night Vigil - Hillier ?

I've owned this fine recording for about one year. The covers are not the same. Perhaps this really is a new recording with the same forces. However, I cannot imagine any reason for making a re-recording. Very strange!

The individual track timings indicated on the HM website for the new SACD are identical to the ones indicated on the cover of the old SACD

Folks, according to Presto, it really is a re-release.

The original issue is indeed an endangered species:

amazon.com - Available from these sellers [3rd party vendors]
amazon.ca - Only 1 left in stock--order soon
amazon.uk - Only 3 left in stock--order soon*
amazon.de - Nur noch 1 Stück verfügbar -- jetzt bestellen
cduniverse - 2 available
crochet - The requested item was not found

____________
*"(more on the way)" -- presumably the re-issue.

Which one sounds better? I'm waiting for a comparative review!
