Information from owned LP & Scott D. Atwell
Clearly my first choice in comparison to the Tallis version. Although while listening to the Tallis Scholars version the voice are superb, you have an impression of too much softness; the Blachly version perspires, you feel the strength; the only problem being the low quality of the Nonesuch pressing. A LP that needs re-edition.
