Thumbs up Gramophone Award for the best 2006 Early Music recording (Crookwood preamps used)

Just for balance - so you DAV chaps don't get too carried away

The winner was:

Tallis "Gaude Gloriosa"
The Cardinall's Musick, dir. Andrew Carwood

Hyperion Records CDA67548


All mics used Crookwood Paintpot preamps.

(Together with a modified DDA mixer and dCS converters.)


We didn't have any problems with transients either
(nor clarity, detail, neutrality or accuracy )

D'oh, sorry. I've not been paying attention - slightly preoccupied with the day job - I've been posting occasionally but I keep forgetting to check PMs.

I'll have a look now.

Apologies again.

Thanks guys. thumbsup

It's more of a prize for the performance than the recording but it's nice to have been part of getting it onto disc.

Those sessions are always fun - if normally freezing due to the rather ..er.. Tudor (complete lack of) heating and usually recording when the castle is closed to tourists i.e. in the winter! It's not uncommon for us to have ice on the control room floor each morning which persists usually until about lunchtime. There's only one AC socket and two electric lightbulbs in the building (all in the chapel) so we have an arrangement with the adjoining parish church who poke a couple of long extension cables under the screen partition which separates the two buildings. These cover heating and lighting for the singers and we use a 30m extension to bring the local power from the chapel into the vestry where we set up. Power stabilisation and UPS are essentials.

The session atmosphere and amazing location more than make up for any inconveniences though. Looking forward to the next one.

Ooops, we did it again

I know I shouldn't really dig up old threads just to show off about them but...well..we don't often get the chance these days to show off about anything.


Gramophone Award for the best 2007 early music recording

The winner was:

WILLIAM BYRD (1543-1623) "Laudibus in sanctis"
The Cardinall's Musick, dir. Andrew Carwood

Hyperion Records CDA67568

(It also picked up a Diapason D'Or award in France)


Same people, venue and gear as before.

Amusingly enough, in this gear obsessed age, the key bits of equipment used, mics, pres, desk, and ADC all date from 1993 or before. I guess we're getting full value from them.

These are wonderful.
Performance and recording.
A series for which I wait on each release.

Not sure what caused the label switch from Gaudeamus to Hyperion.
First thing with CD10 for the new label was rip it open and check the booklet.....whew....recording team continuity!
Hope there are lots more to come in the series.

Very cool venue choice, Fitzalen Chapel, for recording Byrd.
(isn't there a clock bell there?)
Thanks!

And on to 2010

Dredging up the old thread to show off once again .....


Gramophone Awards 2010.

RECORDING OF THE YEAR 2010

and

Best Early Music Recording 2010

WILLIAM BYRD (1543-1623) "Infelix Ego"
The Cardinall's Musick, dir. Andrew Carwood
Hyperion CDA67779


"This year’s Recording of the Year – chosen in a secret ballot by a special panel of critics from the 16 category-winning discs, themselves selected by Gramophone’s 50-strong reviewers panel – has been named as “Infelix Ego”, the 13th (and final) volume of the Byrd Edition, performed by the British vocal ensemble The Cardinall’s Musick under Andrew Carwood, on Hyperion. It is only the second time an Early Music recording has won the Recording of the Year. "



Same people, same gear, same venue as before. If it ain't broke....

Congratulations to Andrew and the "Cardinalls" for another brilliant performance and many thanks for being such fun to work with.

Outstanding News!

I look forward to getting the record.

Awards this year were very Brit-Centric.
Of course that is OK too.


Gramophone Magazine is an excellent resource (though not a Bible here).

Congratulations!

Another request for microphone details please!

Maybe recording in freezing conditions is ideal for choral works.
