Which makes the practice of adding echo after the recording highly
dubious for classical music as you´re correct that the tempo is set by
how long the ambience is in the room where the recording was done.
Hearing a very fast tempo and a 7 seconds church ambience is a dead give
away that orchestra and room have never seen each other in the flesh.
