4 Troops concert aboard USS Intrepid

The 4 Troops' concert which was recorded aboard the US aircraft carrier Intrepid in June of 2010 is amazing for the sheer perfection of their voices, their harmonization with each other, and the quality of the recording. (Interestingly, it is a product of Sony Masterworks, so perhaps it was recorded in DSD.) I experienced it for the first time via PBS HD just the other day, and I doubt that it can be fully appreciated except from a high definition source. Although I object to PBS constantly trying to cram its materialistic/Satanic religion of Darwinism down our throats, I appreciate its use of HDTV's fantastic audio potential.
