Review by racerguy October 4, 2004 (3 of 5 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
A very nice performance, recorded in the Schlosskirche (Castle Church) Bad Dürkheim in the Rhineland. The recording captures the feeling of the church perfectly. The perspective is of a seat pretty far back (perhaps in the middle of the pews) so the ambience is enveloping, and the choir seems somewhat far away. Some people may not like it; if your preference is for close-miked recordings, this one is probably not for you. For regular attendees of live choral works, the perspective will sound fairly realistic, I think.

Warning to owners of SCD-1/SCD-777ES: this disc will cause a non-updated player to emit a burst of noise at the end of playback!
