The recording work of Jacques Poirier is also notable here, with intimate, close-microphone techniques capturing every motion and beat of Wallace as she executes her smooth, gentle performances. Her harp is covered with a stereo perspective, astounding in headphones, that reveals gorgeous stereo panning across Wallace's glissandos and arpeggios. Tasteful mixing leaves Wallace shining brilliant in the warm backdrop of her comrades.
