I have been working on improving the quality of my recordings of

Stanford - Te Deum, Op.66 (1898)

Coleridge-Taylor - Five Choral Ballads, Op.54 (1904-05)

and reduced the original FM hiss.

With all such tinkering, it's swings and roundabouts - some things you gain, some things you lose. To think, I used to spend hours doing this sort of thing with Dundonnel...

Anyway, the newer versions are now in the archive, and hopefully may at least suffice until better transcriptions come along - I surely can't have been the only person in the world who recorded the Stanford on Boxing Day 1999...


Thank you,John. As out Aussie cousins say, "Yer blood's worth bottling!"


Cheers, Lionel. I hope you like the results! I was on my feet at the end of the Stanford at Leeds Town Hall back in November 1999, as were many others. I had three friends singing in the Leeds Philharmonic Chorus (they didn't much like Harry Christophers, but I think he did a pretty decent job in repertoire which was way-outside his comfort zone)...


Unfortunately, when dealing with FM hiss the thing that suffers most loss is the strings because of the similarity in frequency - in general vocal contributions and brass are pretty much unaffected...
