Comments
Women's Chorus of the Scola Cantorum under Preston

A beautiful piece of music.

For a modern recording try Caballe/Morris on Collins EL1022-2

ATRA some acetate noise but very clear and natural

Naxos somewhat processed and muted but still with residual hiss.

M&A heavily filtered to be almost unlistenable.
