"For the sound alone it would be a record to wallow in, but so vividly characterized a performance should win many new listeners and enjoyers." Gramophone, October 1975

This recording of Carmina Burana dates from the zenith of André Previn's golden era at the helm of the London Symphony Orchestra and has been newly cut at EMI's Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo EMI Master Tapes. Produced and engineered by the legendary EMI team of Christopher Bishop and Christopher Parker. The album is pressed on 180-gram vinyl to audiophile standards and features the original album artwork. EMI made the recording in both stereo and quadraphonic, an early attempt at surround sound for the now defunct SQ vinyl format. HiQ has used the superior balance of the stereo master tapes.

Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi
O Fortuna
Fortune plango vulnera

I Primo Vere (Spring)
Veris leta facies
Omnia sol tempera
Ecce gratum

Uf Dem Anger (On the green)
Floret silva
Chramer, gip die varwe mir
(a) Reie (b) Swaz hie gat umbe (c) Chume, chum, geselle min
Were diu werlt alle min

II In Taberna (In the tavern)
Estuans interius
Olim lacus colueram
Ego sum abbas
In taberna quando sumus

III Uf Dem Anger (On the green)
Amor volat undique
Dies, nox et omnia
Stetit puella
Circa mea pectora
Si puer cum puellula
Veni, veni, venias
In trutina
Tempus est iocundum

Blazinflor et Helena
Ave formosissima

Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi
O Fortuna

First and Last HiQ Record

The pressing was quiet; there were no ticks et cetera. However, it sounded a bit lifeless. The noise floor was lower and the dynamics were better on the OOP MFSL release.

Poor mix

This mix is distant sounding, like sitting in the last row of the upper balcony. Also much of it is panned right, so much so that I put on a different album to see if something was wrong with my system (system was fine).
