Notes

  • -  Index data: Part 2 of a 3-part recording of the wedding (recorded duration of about 8.5 minutes) and reception (recorded duration of about 23 minutes) for Mitrianne Popovich and Carl Oreskovich at the Holy Trinity Orthodox Christian Church (Serbian Orthodox Patriarchate), Butte MT: the ceremony: the ceremonial walk (continued from part 1): blessing; choir and closing; choir and bells; end segment from the ceremony; at the reception: band at the event (photograph on frame 31 of call number: AFC 1981/005: 85206 includes a sign "Ed Bowman's Band") performs several selections, including Tea for Two, Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain, polka (with sound of dancers), and You're Nobody till Somebody Loves You (continues in part 3).
  • -  Note: The recording of the wedding ceremony, occupying the first 8.5 minutes of this recording, was made with two Nagra IV-S stereo tape recorders, linked by a Nagra QSQC parallel connector, permitting reels to overlap at end and beginning, and in this case supporting three microphones to cover the event. The fieldworker's notes indicate that the microphones attached to one machine (set in stereo mode) consisted of two Sennheiser 402 cardioid microphones set up as a "tip-to-tip" stereo pair. The other Nagra was in mono mode (same signal to both tracks) and received input from a Sennheiser 802 hyper-cardioid pattern microphone. The recording at the reception, occupying the remaining 23 minutes of this recording, was made with a single Nagra IV-S in stereo mode with two Sennheiser 402 cardioid microphones set up as a "tip-to-tip" stereo pair.
