Missa Luba, Kyrie and Sanctus

The two greatest sections (about three and a half minutes altogether) from the Missa Luba, recorded in 1965 and featured prominently in the 1968 film If... (dir. Lindsay Anderson), in which Les Troubadours du Roi Baudouin perform an arrangement by Father Guido Haazen. For some bizarre reason this recording has never been re-released on CD or any other digital format. It is one of the very few vinyl records that I still possess but it is basically unplayable due to an incident in which a drunk Norwegian friend unleashed a sort of Bermuda Triangle-type typhoon in around 1995/96.
