Think that classical recording sessions are all about glamour and high living? Then check out this photo, particularly the scarves and space heaters - that's what it is all about. Atmospheric photo taken in Chancelade Abbey, Dordogne, France in January 2004 and shows Tonus Peregrinus recording their beautiful CD of music by Leonin and Perotin for Naxos. And things got worse, it started pouring with rain - read the rest of the story here.

Yes, but if the Producer and Recording Engineer are smart, they have a space heater by their feet and flasks of coffee or tea (that, and making sure a good pub or bar is nearby for afters).

On the other hand, that's probably why I have an arthritic knee.
