The musicians performed acoustically in front of a rapt audience in the atmospheric surrounds of St Barnabas Chapel, Soho and each concert was recorded binaurally, allowing the atmosphere of the music to be recorded for perfect playback on headphones.
The recordings will be donated to the audio collection at the British Library. You can find out more about the history of binaural recording here
