Title: Objective and subjective acoustical parameters in catholic churches
Issue Date: 1997
Abstract: This study reports on subjective and objective acoustical field measurements made in a surveyof 36 Catholic churches in Portugal built in the last 14 centuries. Monaural acousticalmeasurements (C80,D50,EDT, L, RT and TS) were taken at several source/receiver locationsin each church and a group of college students was asked to judge the subjective quality ofmusic. The listeners in each church evaluated live music performances at similar locations ineach room. Evaluation sheets were used to record the listeners overall impressions of roomacoustics qualities and also Loudkess, Reverberance, Intimacy, Envelopment, Directionality,Balance, Clarity, Echoes, and Background Noise. This paper concentrates on therelationships of the subjective parameters with the objective room acoustics measures and withthe architectural features of the churches.
