Gaudeamus
Sacred Feast
[CD-526]


For years, Tom Jung has been searching for the most lifelike method of recording a live musical performance. Perhaps he comes the closest to date with this stereo/5 channel discrete surround DTS recording titled "Sacred Feast", a synergy of choral music in a wonderful acoustic space.

Gaudeamus consists of a hand selected group of superb singers under the direction of Paul Halley, a veteran choir/director/composer/organist. The choir at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City was under Paulís direction from 1977 to 1989. He is also the recipient of three Grammy Awards.

"The sound of a DMP recording made by Tom Jung - of unaccompanied choral music recorded and mixed in DSD - was breathtaking. I felt an exquisite sense of space. It was definitely the best sound at the CES" John Atkinson, Stereophile, May 1999

"Sony's Super Audio CD (SACD) version of the Paul Halley Choir singing 'Ubi Caritas' courtesy of DMP turned out to be the finest recording of a choir Iíve heard at any show." - Larry Greenhill. Strereophile, May 1999

"With all due respect to the talented producers, engineers and mixers who are blazing trails in the realm of multi-channel music, Tom Jung - a veteran producer, world-renowned engineer, and head of the Stamford, Connecticut based DMP label - is the only one who really gets it" - Paul Verna. Billboard, May 22, 1999
