less resonance brings clarity to the performance
on 16 April 2011 - Published on Amazon.com
Upon listening to many selected samples of many recordings on the Amazon website this evening, what strikes me is the comparative "dryness" of the sound occasioned by the apparent closer placement of the microphones to the performers. The excessive resonance and longer decay length of other recordings tends to muddy the sound. The result is clarity of instrumental articulation and vocal enunciation. The words, particularly of the Evangelist, sind mehr deutlich ausgesprochen und deshalb viel einfacher zu verstehen.
