When I tried the Skinner / Mt. Carmel set for the first time during the improvisation of the Super Metroid Symphonic Medley (SMSM, see http://www.contrebombarde.com/concerthall/music/31918
for reference), I felt like this would not be the set to go for that many pieces.
Right after that, I switched back to the C-C / NdM just to see how the Metroid theme would work out on its overblowing flutes. Well, I have to say that I was not disappointed... And luckily, I didn't kill the original 7.1ch recording this time. Whew! :-)
For those who own a 7.1 surround system, an 8-channel FLAC file can be picked up here to get an impression of what it will sound like in my living room:

- Player: Current versions of Media Player Classic are able to properly play multi-channel FLAC files.
Game: Super Metroid (et al.)
