    I sometimes got the impression that comments here are not very appreciated.

    I have some remarks about this wonderful classical recording, about the cover 😉
    Part II starts with the beautiful Sinfonia, that is track nr.10.
    Herrscher is with an h and schnauben is with a c.

    Love the classical recordings here, thank you for all your time and work.

    This is great, the trumpets really shine! I was concerned this might be all choral which doesn't really interest me, but there is more than enough instrumentally to sustain my interest.

    I suspect this was recorded in King's College chapel, even though the disc doesn't say so. I've played tuba in an orchestra in King's chapel, and the acoustic on this disc sounds exactly as I remember the chapel. Not many buildings have that sort of sound, and this quad decode reproduces it very well.
