And one on Hanssler. The LSO got good reviews and one poster on Amazon likes it. There used to be a version conducted by Richard Hickox that when issued, it was said to compare favorably with the original version. That's the one I have, and haven't listened to it very much, the lasting impression I have of it is the high levels of tape hiss audible.

I do not need the SACD as I am a stereo listener, and it was cheap 3.60 GBP
for a double cd, not bad.
How is tape hiss possible on a digital recording (Hickox, War Requiem)? In any case, I have this recording in CD form (it is also available as an SACD, and there is no tape hiss or other unusual noise. It's a fine performance.
I was referring to the Britten conducted original recording.

Had Decca's double CD of Britten conducting his War Requiem and not a hiss heard throughout, then again my disc player is connected through a Adept Response aR6TS.
