It's that time of year....

....when the community choirs come out to strut their stuff. Here's a sample from tonight's concert in my town....a new take on one of the many Hallelujah's doing the rounds at this time of year !

Festive greetings, if it's your tradition to celebrate.

As mics with such a big peak in the high frequencies Rodes in omni always surprise me with their classy sound!

Nice recording!

A different celebration, again one of the significant dates in the Judaeo-Christian calendar is almost upon us....here's a short segment of Vivaldi, recorded last week

I am still seeing that it is far to early, pandemic-wise, for the singing ensembles to come out of hiding. I support that view in general, but it still makes me sad. :(:(

No "Spring Celebrations" in my neck of the woods and few even for my boss who has the whole local scene in his pocket.

That's probably a wise, conservative stance Doug...our town is looking in this direction >>>

I read through those links. IMHO, there are still many, many qualifiers on choral singing in them.

We just passed the one year anniversary of the outbreak at the Skagit Valley Chorale.

Vax appointments for everyone over 18 were announced in my county last week. Don't know if they've filled up yet or not.

Could you share a few more details? What was the distance to the choir and what was the angle (i.e. orchestra angle)? Thanks!

my i ask whether this was also done with an a/b mic setup?

(i like the voice, the meandering of the voice in the stereo soundfield and the balance between the ensemble and the voice much less...)




p.s. pretty much regardless of the pandemic situation, professional choirs in my country were allowed to rehearse and record during the last year.

Yes, wide AB, wider than I would have liked, and very limited placement options in general....no voice spot. Hence the swaying of the singer's body to face the audience resulted in exaggerated image movement. Probably XY would have been a better choice, at the expense of overall image width ?

thx - don't worry/we will never know/there are almost always some issues which limit our options in terms of what we think we could achieve in a recording...

Yes with limited mic placement options, compromises are chosen which both enhance and show up deficiencies...sometimes you just have to live with those, in order to get some record of the event. C'est la vie...
