Anders Eby conducts the Mikaeli Chamber Choir and a cast of acclaimed soloists on this programme dedicated to works by composer Olov Olofsson. Originally recorded in 1975 for Swedish audiophile label Proprius, the album has been remastered by 2xHD for the high-resolution music lover.

In an advertisement for Proprius some years ago, Proprius founder Jacob Boëthius wrote: “A small record company can’t afford to put out bad discs. And you, the music lover, must be confident that what you buy is good”. He was aware that, in the final analysis, quality is what counts with regard to clients, record buyers, artists and sound engineers. This statement is mirrored totally in the 2xHD philosophy.


01 – Dagen skimrar I gräset…
02 – Fäbodpsalm från Älvdalen
03 – Santa K
04 – Ett ansikte
05 – Psalm 138 ur Psaltaren
06 – Och efteråt vilar tystnaden

For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/4”, 15 ips CCIR master tape was played on a Nagra-T modified with high-end tube playback electronics, wired with OCC silver cable from the playback head direct to a Telefunken EF806 tube. The Nagra T has one of the best transports ever made, having four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head.
We did an analog transfer for each high-res sampling and A & B comparisons were made with the original LP, using the KRONOS turntable with a BLACK BEAUTY tone arm.

DSD5.6mHz was created using Merging Horus/Hapi A/D converter, calibrated to the required format, and a dCS Vivaldi clock.

2xHD was created by producer/studio owner André Perry and audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme.
