Columbia Oratorio Chorus--"Hallelujah Chorus" (1916)

Christmas is over?  Not here, it isn't.  At least, not until I've posted this gem of a 1916 78:

Great fidelity, though the disc contains more than the usual share of rumble.  I was able to cancel most of it out, but I didn't dare bring out the lower frequencies.  So, things are little more trebly than I wanted, but it works, because the voices ring out loud and clear, and the voices are the thing.

Our third (?) vintage recording of Hallelujah Chorus for your just-after-Christmas.
