A total of seven Baroque choral compositions are featured, from the Duben collection at the University of Uppsala in Sweden. Stefano Fabri’s Laudate pueri Dominum and Simon Vesi’s De profundis clarmavi are especially noteworthy. The acoustic of the recording venue is very naturally captured. The chorus, which is dominated by female voices, is convincingly localized within the soundstage with excellent width and depth and with just the right blend of intimacy and spaciousness.” -Stereophile 1991 record to die for, by Thomas J Norton

Technical Notes:
For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/4”, 15 ips CCIR master tape was played on a Nagra-T modified with high-end tube playback electronics, wired with OCC silver cable from the playback head direct to a Telefunken EF806 tube. The Nagra T has one of the best transports ever made with four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head. We did an analog transfer for each high-res sampling and A & B comparisons were made with the original LP, using the KRONOS turntable with a BLACK BEAUTY tone arm.
