My, we’ve come a long way in recording technology. At one point I wondered if that was a vocal quartet or a train whistle. Historically charming.

Good ear, Speck.

While the 1905 recorded vocal details are largely inaudible, especially close harmonies of the “barbershop” quartet style, your train whistle comments reminded me that I had pitched the original recording down 1/2 step for use on another project. Restoring the original pitch provided a slight improvement but many words are still inaudible.

Using Izotope RX to remove hiss exacerbated the train whistle effect to small degree. Reminded me of one of these.
