Which recording is this?

I was looking through user reviews of the CCB-8. I found the following comment: "That piece that you played of a choral and pipe organ piece in a large room (maybe a cathedral) was astonishingly realistic." What recording was this? (RMAF 2016)

We have a few of those tracks but it may have been Turtle Creek Chorale/John Rutter - Pie Jesu

Thank you. Hsu Research once published a list of recordings with demo-worthy bass. I have a copy of the list, and I have some of the recordings. But the list is at least 20 years old. It could be profitably revised to reflect more recent recordings.

Yea we change it up as we go really. That piece didn't have a lot of bass, but it did have a pipe organ that digs decently low.

The Saturn movement of Holst's The Planets, played by the Toronto Sym and conducted by Andrew Davis, has some very deep bass. It's deeper than the bass in the recording by Dutoit mentioned in your old recommended bass albums list.

Is it true -- in your opinion, Kevin -- that Hsu Research has rather backed off from trying to produce ultra-low bass? By "ultra-low," I mean substantial output below 16 Hz. I have one VTF-3 Mk 4, which I think had a -3 db spec of 16 Hz with one port open. The current VTF-3 Mk5 HP only promises 17 Hz. Even the flagship VTF-15 Mk2 only promises 16 Hz. There appears to have been an adjustment in engineering goals. I have been looking at other brands, some of whose models promise substantial output as low as 12 or 13 Hz.

Also -- has Hsu Research done any research or experimentation with Dolby Atmos? I don't have an Atmos setup, although I have the electronics for it. I've found that it's just about impossible to hear an Atmos demo, particularly with in/on ceiling height speakers. I'm puzzled that the audio/HT retailing industry hasn't put some effort in trying to market this. People won't buy it if they can't hear it.
