Church Bells Of Novgorod / Kedroff Male Quartet

Post by Wolfe »

Russian folk song.

Not much to report about this group or the recording details. Anyone know something about the Kedroff?

Rather haunting performance.

Wolfe,

Unfortunately not, but thank you for sharing it. While I’m not knowledgeable about Russian music, I enjoyed this piece.

The matrix number looks like A2555. For UK-recorded 10 inch recordings (this is one), Rust's AMERICAN RECORD LABEL BOOK shows A.1550 as the approximate first matrix number used in 1925, WA.2693 as the first for 1926. The W isn't shown on the label, but may be seen in the dead wax, considerably smaller than the W on US matrices.

Viva-Tonal, thanks for that information, I had guessed this to be around 1926-ish, but couldn't confirm.

MordEth, glad you liked it.

I actually have this record. It's rather creepy.
