    Never mind, I don't know what went wrong with the quoted bit, but I don't see any way to delete this and begin again.

    Found this on Spotify as well. Not an unpleasant listen by any means, but my least favorite from what I've been exposed to in this genre so far. I think it's because the music is more to the front and obscures part of the vocals.

    Another box set with which I have been reunited this month. I've ripped and am currently listening to the Requiem in D minor.

    You might like this one better, by Philippe Herreweghe and Collegium Vocale Gent:

    Yes, I did like this one better. I think the best way I can describe the difference for me between the two is that this one seemed more like worship than concert performance. There is, however, another interesting difference between the two: this one goes from SV 206: XII to XIII (a 12-track "Magnificat"), while the Erato goes from XII to XIV (also a 12-track "Magnificat"). Is the latter a real-life example of triskaidekaphobia or is there another reason for this discrepancy?

    Interesting project. I've heard bits of this on the radio. How does it REALLY sound?

    Both the recording and performance sound wonderful. It seems they went to quite some effort to make this recording in the cathedral of Hagia Sophia. Highly recommended for anyone who is interested in Byzantine chant.

    You can sample some of the recording and find out more here: https://cappellaromana.org/product/l...zantine-chant/

    Wow, I've been listening on Spotify and it does sound wonderful. Are you listening on a surround system, Biwa?

    I wonder if someone with enough money could make their living room sound like a cathedral using the same technology.

    With enough money you could make your own actual cathedral. LOL!! Well, I certainly don’t have that kind of money, but yes, I am listening on a surround system. Recreating the natural resonance of cathedrals for choral music and organ music is one of the main reasons I put the effort into setting up my surround system.

    A modest surround system can be acquired at a reasonable price. I have heard several types of set ups but IMHO 4 large speakers is plenty for listening to music. However, these days people are having a lot of fun with technology, like Dolby Atmos with 7 or more speakers. Personally, I feel that number of speakers is more for recreating all the sound effects in movies, etc… But as they say… variety is the spice of life, so more power to them.

    Anyway, the regular CD of this performance sounds great, too. Definitely worth acquiring if you like the music.
