Recording of Hoggard edition of Brahms Requiem?

I searched the archives and could only find this question posted from many years ago with no answers listed.  
Are there available recordings of the Brahms Requiem with the Hoggard text?  If so, I'd love to hear what they are and about their respective merits.

Not having gotten any replies, and having done an extensive search online, I'm going to hazard a guess that there are none, or at least none that are currently available.

No commercial ones that I know of.  We just did it and have a recording of our performance.  Certainly not professional but OK.  BTW avoid the recent BSO recording.  It is badly flawed in production, not performance.

I conducted the Greenville Chorale and G'ville Symphony Orchestra in performance in fall 2010, using the Hoggard English translation.   I really like it above others (except for singing the original German).
I have used the old Schirmer translation, and the R.Shaw translation.  Still, prefer Hoggard's setting........with one or two small changes which i discussed with Dr.Hoggard years ago.   Recording is available.
