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 >>>
