Is there a place for Dolby Atmos in music? Yes, I understand all about the need for flying debris in those big action movies. but for a recording of a world-famous choir performing in one of UK’s best-known buildings?

Well, yes, there is: as I explain in this piece, just published for Gramophone, this may be the first classical recording to use Dolby Atmos, but others are thinking along the same lines…

    It is an astonishing experience to be in the cathedral and at home at the same time.

All dimensions of sound cognition were present with all voices and acoustics in their proper places. I now wish that more releases will come soon. It is a cheap investment for those, like me, who already enjoy SACD.
