I just got the Telarc 1812 on SACD, and let me tell you all, it is SUPERB! It is one of the most beautiful recordings I have ever heard. The cannon shots are so realistic that even my dog looked at the speakers trying to figure out who was firing at her! This is no exaggeration, and she has never done that with any other recording. Never mind the special effects. The recording is a work of art. I can't even begin to describe it. You have to hear it!
