From 1963 at Albert Hall, London. That space was the only space in the UK large enough for the Choir. The acoustics in that arena are very bizarre such that the top levels hear the music some time after the conductor has moved his arms to indicate the movements. The recording spent a lot of time in the USSR, went on sale there, was then remastered in Russia and appears now for the first time. Amazing singing.
