TAS Super LP List! Special Merit: Collections

Reissued on 180g Vinyl for the First Time Since It Was Recorded!

Half-Speed Mastered from Original Master Tapes by Stan Ricker! Pressed at Pallas!

On The Absolute Sound List of Must-Hear Audiophile Recordings!

This double LP set has resided on The Absolute Sound's 'Super Disc' list since dinosaurs ruled. It has an incredible variety of music and instruments from a 200-year period. There are no voices. The sound is very clean, transparent, complex and extended in the highs. The harmonic richness and decay within the hall is outstanding. The soundstage is very deep, but it is not unusually wide.

The disc is simply ravishing. It's a classic analogue recording from 1980, lovingly produced, engineered and edited by Robert von Bahr using a Revox A77 and two - presumably spaced — simple Sennheiser MKH105 omni condenser mikes (vintage early '60's design); it amply shows the merits of a simple signal path, combined with minimal intervention and post-processing.

"This reissue on Fabio Camorani’s AudioNautes Recordings label is special in a number of ways. First of all it utilizes the original session tapes provided by the producer/engineer Robert von Bahr, but most importantly it’s one of the late Stan Ricker’s final projects and I cannot think of a more fitting and fantastic tribute than this reissue to Stan Ricker’s half-speed mastering brilliance and the quality of his cutting system electronics custom designed and hand-crafted by Keith O. Johnson... another generation of vinyl lovers has a chance to enjoy and treasure this superb double LP set... Most highly recommended" - Michael Fremer,, Music 10/11, Sound 11/11!

The recording immediately astonishes with its fluid, natural and utterly truthful sound, And the acoustic of the Chapel of the Imperial College, Madrid is just beautiful. The music, all 80 minutes of it, features variations on three archetypal Spanish themes (La Spagna, a Spagnoletta and Pavane), as interpreted by different composers such as Praetorius, Farnaby, Negri, Josquin Desprez, Ortiz and others. Aided by impeccable playing and 'realisation' of the basic themes, the end result is lively, fun and eclectic.

This reissue used the original tape, cut by the late Stan Ricker, with lacquers processed by RTI. Pallas pressed in Germany and the sound is spectacular. Of course, if Spanish baroque isn't your thing, well you haven't listened. The original was a Harry Pearson The Absolute Sound 'Super Disc' selection and is quite collectible as is this 2015 reissue.
