Information from owned LP, previously kindly provided by Robert Horres. See also Tudor 0501 [LP] Das Fest der Pierbaldo (Le Festin de Pierbaldo) nach dem sonettenkranz "Mundus Placidus" des Simon d'Orvieto; this LP is nearly identical, but it was recorded in 1970 or prior, and this one in 1973.
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.".
