Mozart Requiem -

05 May 2003

A particular recent favorite of mine: the Linn Records SACD of Mackerras and the Scottish Symphony doing a wonderful performance of Mozart's Requiem... in an inspired five channel recording! The sense of hall space and reverberant decay was marvelous, and gave us a sense of what classic recordings in multi-channel DSD could do for our jaded sensibilities. What I was enjoying is the sort of experience that could lead to a real re-birth of classical music in the home... who wouldn't want this?!

Indeed, if there are any of you who are questioning whether or not multi-channel is worthwhile...well, let's just say that properly done, it really can move us from "soundstage" to "soundfield," and reconnect us emotionally and spiritually with the music again.
