Small choir as for Sunday worship, medium sized choir as the ‘projektchor’, to the largest choir of this series singing the Estonian Mass in the cathedral.
We have difficulty with lighting conditions particularly so at the Lutheran Church – less so in the cathedral where they have installed quite powerful overhead lights above the choir.
Our latest recording is of the 2016 Advent concert – Joseph Haydn’s “Lord Nelson Mass“. This time we rented two identical Sony cameras with 1” sensors, wider angle lens, and supposedly better low-light performance. The result was that the cameras still operated at close to maximum gain, although with improved background image noise levels – when viewed at FHD the result is quite smooth – albeit still rather dark.
We really do have to get some lights into that recording space! (note: we had better success with some temporary lighting installed in the organ gallery for a Japanese concert in September 2017).
