So here is a quick “faders-up” preview of “O Holy Night”, as performed at All Souls Church on 12th December at Christmas Praise – what a stunning event that was!

Credits as follows:

  • Composer:  Adolph Adam
  • Singer: Constantine Andronikou
  • Orchestra: All Souls Orchestra
  • Conductor: Dr Noel Tredinnick

Notes:

  1. Because there’s such a huge dynamic swing between loudest and quietest parts of the piece (some 20->40dB depending which metering standard one uses), I’ve approximated what I *would* be doing with faders by using compressors.  The result isn’t yet “pretty” but it is functional – at least enough until it’s decided whether further work will be done!
  2. Though I helped provide the technical links between live and recording “worlds” for this event, I’m not actually involved in producing the radio mix.🙂
