Recording site and date:
Unknown [1952 or prior];
Cook 11312 [LP, mono] The Forgotten Pedal Harpsichord - The Hufstader Singers.
Information from Gregg Audette and MELVYL.
The 1092BN binaural issue used the Cook dual-cartridge system.
All the Hufstader selections are sung as ensembles except for a soprano bit in the Ravel; i.e. Oberlin is never heard solo, though his voice is often prominent.
Cook was a small label put out by engineer Emory Cook, who here did himself no credit, sound being rather below contemporary average.
