Recorded using Nagra 38 cm/sec 1/4 inchProduced in collaboration with the Arena Sferisterio Association - Traditional Theatre and the Marche Region as part of the project "Mariella Devia for the Jubilee of the Year 2000 in the Marche"
It is the most beautiful sacred composition in the history of music.
In this recording two great vocalists are protagonists: Mariella Devia soprano and Francesca Provvisionato mezzo-soprano masterfully directed by Daniele Callegari.
Giulio Cesare Ricci for this recording did not choose a church but the intriguing acoustics of the Lauro Rossi theater in Macerata.
It only used only two microphone couples, two Neumann M49 and two Neumann U47.
The mastering has been relalized by Giulio Cesare Ricci using the Signoricci system, entirely analog and tube.
The Master was created by transferring the Analog Master realized with the Nagra 4s 15ips, 2 tracks, 1 / 4inch to dCS A / D Converter DSD.
"no editing. All tracks on this record are heard as they were performed"
A recording where you can fully appreciate the timbre of the voices, the colors of the orchestra instruments, "depth and sound heights".
