Thought it may be worth a thread for audiophile quality recordings that are also great music, with a word or two of justification.
The Tallis Scholars are perhaps the world’s finest Renaissance and Baroque vocal group. They have flourished under the leadership of Peter Phillips since 1973. He set up their own record label, Gimell, in 1980. This recording won Gramophone Record of the Year in 1986, probably the top classical award worldwide, and put Renaissance music on the map. It was digitally recorded, and released on a DMM vinyl pressing, tape and CD (available to download from Hyperion). Two sopranos were used to increase the vocal range of these masses. The sound quality off vinyl is simply astonishing.
