Information from owned LP (MHS), Bielefelder Katalog (1/1971) and Robert Horres. See also Mirror music 00002 [LP] Ein Fest im Palazzo des umbrischen grafen pierbaldo im Jahre 1400; this LP is nearly identical, but the it was recorded in 1973, and this one recorded in 1970 or prior.
Klaus Walter states in a personal e-mail: "There exists another LP that we recorded for TUDOR records earlier. It is about the same, as far to the programme, but without the sonnet of Prudenciani. This was not planned like that, because without the words, the program is senseless. Therefore we did not agree, that the LP would be issued in this form, but we allowed TUDOR to sell the 500 records already pressed.".
