BBC Womens Chorus  - London Symphony Orchestra   conducted by   Sir Malcolm Sargent 
Decca  ACL 26
 (LXT 2871)    1960 pressing, c.1958 matrices: ARL2067 -1DR / ARL2068 -1DR.    Recorded: 17/20-21 May 1954 - Kingsway Hall.   
Minimal de-click ('1.2')  + very slight treble increase to help compensate for any loss of 'air'.   
The original -1A matrices (used until 1957/8) have less clarity/cleanliness.  Lovely performance.    Not on CD        Sleeve-note >>>
