Each version can be used in three formats:             
a.b. Two channels stereo of wet and semidry
c. A Surround version (3 pairs of stereo recording: close (near); at distance (far) and in the background (rear).

In the surround version you can adjust the perspective by setting the volume of the near, far and rear recordings. (Suitable HW loading and channel settings can be used to give wet or semidry stereo modes or 4 channel surround mode too).   

The sample set reverb is 4-5 s reflecting the original  acoustics of the church.
