X/Y - A/B - M/S - Blumlein Options for a choir.

Forgive me if I posted this before, but I spent the day going through some old stuff and thought that anyone interested in stereo mic techniques might find this choir recording in a church interesting as the clips I have used make the different techniques quite easy to hear, and, with a visual display, see.

I liked this a LOT!
I agree that the Blumlein sounded entirely better and fuller with nice Left/Right movement.
The depth front to back was VERY evident and almost non existent (comparatively) to the x/y or a/b.
The Mid-Side was interesting, but not as deep or not as much bloom or Voice movement.
Thanks for posting this!
