As you may know, the sound engineer, Richard Caniell, periodically returns to previously released restorations to see if he can improve them in some way. For instance, a breakthrough in sound restoration approach he developed in October of 2011 led to very significant improvements to the Toscanini Missa Solemnis 1935, and marked improvement to the Verdi Requiem 1938 concerts. (Similar techniques have been applied to our new releases of the 1939 Simon Boccanegra, 1939 Der Rosenkavalier and the 1936 Met Die Meistersinger .) Sometimes improvements could be made in noise reduction as another example, without sacrifice to the overtones. Some remasters are offered because of mastering errors, such as pitch lapses.

As a result of re-auditioning these previous releases, the sound engineer is offering re-mastered discs for the albums listed below. Most are offered free only to people who have already bought the previous editions, and will be included with any order. If only remastered discs are wanted in an order, we might need to charge for the cost of postage to ship them unless it was our error.

The exceptions to this are the Toscanini Missa Solemnis 1935, which has been so extensively remastered that it has been re-submitted for review (as shown on our web site). For this remaster we charge a flat rate of $10.00. The other exception is the Gretchaninioff Missa Oecumenica, which has recently been completed by a patron generously supplying us with the long missing Kyrie movement. For this a flat rate of $5.00 would be charged.

Please click on each release to read the details about the improvements or corrections that have been made to each.
