Torrent description

This is a 24-bit/44.1 kHz transcription using high-end analog equipment of a performance on the lyra viol by Mary Cyr, released as an LP on McGill University Records (82015) in 1983. It has not to my knowledge ever been released on CD. Mary Cyr was then an associate professor at McGill, and as of 2002 had moved onto the University of Guelph.

The lyra viol is a smaller variant on the bass viol, popular in England in the 17th century, when a distinctive repertoire of polyphonic music was written for it. More information on the instrument and its repertoire can be found in the Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, and in Wikipedia.

This is a warm, detailed recording with a rich bass resonance that befits the instrument. The LP is in immaculate condition, and there is virtually no tracking distortion at all except for a bit in the last couple of minutes of each side of the LP.

I have recently uploaded two other 24-bit LP transcriptions of comparable quality, and will be doing more in the near future. You can find them by clicking on my user id.

Equipment used for A/D conversion: Lyra Helikon phono cartridge, Linn LP12/Lingo turntable, Linn Ittok tonearm, Audioquest LeoPard tonearm cable, PS Audio PS2 preamplifier, Kimber PBJ interconnect, M-Audio Audiophile USB A/D converter.
