1977

45 rpm LP / TT:
CD / TT: 44:02
SACD / TT: 44:29

Recorded by Mark Levinson at General Theological Seminary, New York City, New York, USA.
These pieces were recorded with no edits or 'second takes' in the chapel of the General Theological Seminary in New York City. The original LP did not include Bach's Lute Suite in G, which Eliot played at 2am after the planned program was recorded. This is a magic album which has captured the spirit of one of the great musicians of our time when he was just starting his career.
Levinson used unconventional, specially hand-build recording equipment in these recordings. The transfer of the original analog tapes to digital format was done by Bob Ludwig at Masterdisk in New York. Ludwig did the original mastering of these tapes for the vinyl record production in the 1970s and he gave the utmost care in making this CD series as faithful as possible to the original master tapes.
