I was flicking through the latest Oxford University Press catalogue
and I came across the following book
Concert and opera halls: how they sound
by Leo Beranek.
The blurb describes the book as follows
'Beranek gives answers to the questions: How do concert halls compare?
Which ones are rated the best? What acoustical attributes contribue most
to acoustic quality? Does investigation of the halls built in the last
25 years reveal that acoustical design today is more of a science and
less of an art?'

all of which sounds very interesting. Has anyone read this book and if
so could they comment on it. In particular what are the best concert
halls according to  Beranek?

cheers
Neil
