当我们想要对合唱团进行抽样时，我们毫不怀疑我们想要进行合唱。马里奥·兰纳罗（Mario Lanaro） - 我们在维罗纳大学（Verona University）学习期间有幸与之相遇 - 拥有我们所寻求的所有品质。他不仅拥?#24615;?#23454;而专业的经典训练，还是着名的合唱?#23500;?#23478;，伟大的风琴师，以及声名鹊起的作曲家。他在领导力，权威，光?#38498;?#21516;情之间取得了适当的平衡，并且能够让他工作的人以正确的?#37027;?#23613;力而为。从一个方面来说，我们希望机制顺利运行;另一方面，我们不想失去新闻，让人们更加谨慎和敏感。我们通过选择两个合唱团来实现这一目标，这两个合唱团与马里奥·拉纳罗（Mario Lanaro）之前的特殊承诺有很长的历史 - 因此他们已经彼此了解得很好 - 但这通常来自不同的?#23500;?#23478;。
再一次，我们想要正确的位置来品尝这种非常特殊的乐器：同时可以是教堂，音乐厅和录音室的东西，而不是这些地方中的任何一个。这就是为什么我们选择在美妙的Sala Giardino品尝Crema的Dominus Choir。在我们的“Rinascimento会议”中，我们很高兴发现和欣赏它。我们于7月11日开始与女声合唱团“La Rose”合作。通常由Jose Borgo夫人进行，女孩们早上起来闪闪发光。在一次惊人的会议之后，我们几乎感到困惑而不是高兴。那些男人怎么能做出如?#21496;?#24425;的作品呢？与那些奇妙的声音相比，他们怎么会听起来呢？但是，在与男性合唱团的第一天之后 - 特别是在丰盛的晚餐之后，没有保存葡萄酒 - 之后，我们更加惊讶的是，他们继续完美地调和，并且拥有正确的情绪和能量，几乎类似于自然的“地狱般的”在那些天使般的声音中起诉。令人惊讶的是，从不同的角度出发，可以获得相同的两件事情。就像一个例子，女孩们几乎总是在他们的头发上挥手，好像他们正在绘画或拉动神奇的电线，感觉某种方式帮助他们从他们的?#36136;品?#23556;。相反，通常由Maurizio Sacquegna先生?#23500;?#30340;Vocal Ensemble“Novecento”的人站在古罗马教堂的柱子旁边。
我们更不确定的事情之一 - ?#35789;?#22312;我们的初步会议中，?#23500;?#23478;向我们保证 - 是歌手的忍耐力。我们认为声音会比任何其他乐器更容易和更快地发出声音。我们计划短暂的录音会议有许多休息时间，但?#20197;?#30340;是，一次，我们错了。 “La Rose”和“Novecento”合唱团给我们带来了一些非常强烈的惊奇感，不仅在会议期间唱歌，而且每次午餐和晚餐后都只是为了好玩。而且，既然我们发现人声是最动人的乐器之一，我们所有的饭菜几乎都流下了眼泪！

“Dominus” is the latin word that stands for “Lord”. From the contraction of the female “Domina” comes “Donna”, the modern italian word for “Woman”. The same word is attested in old English Law for noble ladies who held a barony in their own right. On the other hand, “Dominoes” is the popular game, born in China, famous for its numbered tiles. Focusing on the ideas of making something both gamish and funny as well as something that is built on traditional church chants and prayers, we created Dominus Choir.
When Fluffyaudio’s adventure began and our first sample library was released, we were already dreaming of how it would have been to sample a vocal ensemble. Five years have passed since My Piano, our first domino tile. Thanks to our collaborators and friends and, moreover, our loyal supporters and fierce critics, we have gained great experience. More than as our second dominoes tile, we like to think of all those people as the vital sap, the pushing energy that helped our dominoes to keep on flowing even when it was going to stop.
When we thought to sample a choir, we had no doubt of who we wanted to conduct it. Mario Lanaro – with whom we had the pleasure of coming across during our years of study at Verona University – had all the qualities we were looking for. With more than just a solid and professional classical training, he is a renowned Choir Conductor, a great Organist, and a Composer of increasing fame. He has the right balance between leadership, authority, shine and sympathy, and the sought-after ability to put people he works with in the right mood to do their best. From one side, we wanted the mechanism to run smooth; on the other, we didn’t want to lose the freshness of the news that makes people more careful and responsive. We achieved this by choosing two choirs that had a long story of previous special commitments with Mario Lanaro – so that they already knew well each other – but that are normally held from different conductors.
Again, we wanted the right location to sample this very special instrument: something that could have been a church, a concert hall and a recording studio at the same time, without being any one of these places. This is why we chose to sample Dominus Choir at Crema, in the wonderful Sala Giardino. Its the very same place we had the pleasure to discover and to appreciate in our “Rinascimento sessions”. We started on the eleventh of July with the Female Vocal Ensemble “La Rose”. Usually conducted by Mrs. Jose Borgo, the girls came sparkling and twinkling in the morning. After an astonishing session, we were almost more confused than pleased. How could the men do such a wonderful work and how would they have sounded compared to those wondrous voices? But we were even more amazed when, after the first day with the male choir – and especially after a rich dinner, without saving wine – they kept on singing perfectly in tune and with the right mood and energy, almost resembling the natural “hellish” prosecution in the low of those angelic voices. It is amazing to notice how differently the same two things could be obtained starting for different perspectives. Just as an example, the girls were almost always waving their hands in their hair, as if they were painting or pulling magical wires, feeling somehow helped in their emission from their gestures. On the contrary, the men of the Vocal Ensemble “Novecento”, usually conducted by Mr. Maurizio Sacquegna, stood like the columns of an ancient Roman church.
One of the things we were more unsure about – even if in our preliminary meetings the Conductors reassured us – was the endurance of the singers. We thought that a voice would tire much more easily and much more quickly than any other instrument. We planned short sessions of recording with many breaks, but luckily, for once, we were wrong. Both “La Rose” and “Novecento” ensemble gave us some very intense feelings of amazement, singing not only during the session, but even just for fun after every lunch and dinner. And since we find that the human voice is one of the most moving instruments, all our meals almost ended up in tears!
