This recording was made on June 30th, 2018 in the Franciscan Convent in Utrecht, the Netherlands. In order not to disturb the flow of the meditation it was recorded in one “take”, so without edits. No cutting and pasting. Everything exactly as it sounded in the chapel of the convent, where I spent many hours meditating and praying with the brethren. Fritz de With used Schoeps microphones, Siltech cables, and Nagra recorders during the recording. Mastering was done at Arjan Rietveld Digital Mastering in Baarn. Lay out: M84 Media.
