2xHD presents on reel-to-reel 1/4-inch 15-inch-per-second tape this 2-reel tape version of Cantate Domino, recorded by Bertil Alving in 1976. This album is famous for its incredible sound quality. The album begins with Enrico Bossi's "Cantate Domino" for choir, organ, trumpets and trombones. A wonderful piece with a stunning organ introduction. Included are also works by Handel, Otto Olsson, Adam and some Swedish folk songs. A famous reference record.
2xHD is a brand known to audiophiles who love jazz. The team of producer André Perry and audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme have long produced exceptional transfers from analog tape featuring great artists.
All 2xHD tapes are from the original analog master and transfered in the analog domain using a Nagra-T tape recorder, modified with high-end tube playback electronics, wired with OCC silver cable from the playback head direct to a Nick Doshi tube head preamplifier. The Nagra T, with its four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head, is one of the best transports ever made. A custom-built carbon fiber head block and a head damping electronic system permit 2xHD FUSION to obtain more transparency and better 3D imaging. This copy was recorded on a Nagra IV-S 1/4" at 15 ips.
The transfer is made to Recording The Masters SM900 magnetic tape which has all the features of a master tape, with the best print-through protection and longest storage life.
