This repository contains the data set related to the paper “The Acoustic Environment of York Minster's Chapter House”, published in "Acoustics" as part of the "Special Issue Historical Acoustics: Relationships between People and Sound over Time" and available at: DOI: 10.3390/acoustics2010003 This dataset contains the B-format Room Impulse Responses (RIR) in the Waveform Audio File standard Format (.wav) measured and simulated at a selected set of source-receiver combinations in the York Minster's Chapter House, used for the acoustical analysis performed as part of the CATHEDRAL ACOUSTICS project (CA-MRIR-YM-CH and CA-SRIR-YM-CH folders respectively). The .xls spreadsheets (CA-YM-CH-MRIR-ResultData-EnergyParameters and CA-YM-CH-SRIR-ResultData-EnergyParameters) include the results derived for the measured and simulated RIR used for the discussion presented in the manuscript. LICENCE.txt, METADATA.txt and README.txt contain a brief description of the folder contents, authors, other useful information. Details on the acoustic measurement campaigns and simulations can be found in the manuscript. Please cite both the paper and dataset if used.
