I wonder how others feel about this. Most notable in my experience, I have
a few recordings of Pablo Casals with a lot of various articulations on
them. When all of a sudden out of the music I hear a hum or an "ahhhh", I
am touched, transported in time and feel connected to this great musician.
I'd never want those utterances edited out of a recording.
