Bach Cello Suite No. 4 - High-end Mic Shootout

Last week I got to test the hall where I will be playing my Bach marathon in just 32 days. I am trying to see which configuration to use for the recital. I used 3 mics for the test: a factory-matched pair of DPA 4006a and one Schoeps CMC 64. Below are WAV files that I put together using different mic configurations. All of the files are of the same performance of Bach's Bourrees from the 4th Suite. You can vote for your favorite in the comments.
