    Christmas Show Ambassadors of Harmony 2009

    Hi folks,
    this is a short video of some excerpts of the 2009 Ambassadors of Harmony Christmas show that took place two weeks ago here in St. Louis Missouri.
    I was responsible for micing and mixing the live stereo audio for video.

    Enjoy!

    I just finished watching the previous Christmas DVD of the Ambassadors of Harmony which I purchased a year ago. I really enjoyed it. I see that they also sang "Do you hear what I hear", "Alleluia", and "Little Drummer Boy" in the new (2009) DVD, but with enhanced choreography.

    I can see that you also used a different set of mics up front to record the quartet. What were the mics used previously? and in the new recording?

    Congratulations for a very nice sound. I like it. Any chance of a 5.1 mix?

    And you, as always, did a great job, Dan!

    Thanks for sharing!

    5.1... no, but I guess I could do that for fun sometime. In previous years, the mics for the quartet were Neumann KM84. This year since I was involved with the live show, I brought my Schoeps CMXY4V stereo mic. It is beyond awesome. No audible phase shift when a person is moving from side to side, and fidelity at a serious distance is just incredible.

    I am glad you like the AOH chorus they are pretty darn awesome.
    In February, a DVD of this years 2009 show will be available for purchase... it should be awesome!

    Thanks alot Jun, and Gunther, I am very glad you like the sound too
    Merry Christmas to you both and a Happy New Year!

    Hi Dan,

    As a lifelong fan of The Four Freshmen and the Beach Boys, I have always loved good a capella vocal arrangements ... the beginning of your clip had some stellar 4-part renditions. The full ensemble Nativity was great as well.

    Thanks for posting this ... Merry Christmas!

    Regards,

    Frank

    PS: And thanks for all your work on getting the Christmas album out; always a seasonal present to behold!

    Dan:

    Just a great acapella group that gets better every year.

    Your mixing and recording were awesome and really captured
    and increased the beauty of the group's work. I really enjoy
    listening to anything you have recorded or mixed. They are
    all a learning experience.

    Awesome, Dan.
