Abstract

This paper reviews the two authors' early work (1960s - 70s) on early lateral reflections in concert halls, which has become seminal for acoustic design of concert halls and opera houses. The paper provides valuable background to the events surrounding the publications produced at the time. Rather than just being a simple review paper, it also considers the importance of the relevant subjective effect (known as 'spatial impression') in concert halls and cites four auditoria which are important in terms of this question, given that concert hall listening is a multi-dimensional experience with different listeners having different priorities in terms of their overall preferences. These sections of the paper are new contributions to the field.
