I wonder if this is a real mural from an orthodox monastery or so (I think I saw somewhat similar paintings in one of the Meteora monasteries open to tourists but this was a long time ago) or only adopting such a style.
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.
(Bob Dylan)

This is a pretty good cover imho. I would have made the texts brown instead of white to make them easier to read, but that all I have to say.
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Beautiful. Love that performance of the Requiem, by the way.

That icon is amazing!  I just did some googling about it (Orthodox Wiki).  :)

Listened also to part of the performance (on youtube):  excellent!

Greeting folks, the worst sleeve were  from label Turnaboutvox, but this compagnie would offer quality thick  vinyl witch mention quality of sound, I am listening a lot to two of them being:

Henry IV but that not the worst  sleeve it's one of there best, but  Music of Spanish Renaissance at the court of Emperor Charles the fifth is hideous look s like someone puke on the sleeve but great vinyl.
