Maybe plug in to the sound board next time rather than using a mic?

But sound board was in another room and I would not have been able to monitor and control the recorder throughout.

The echo-ey vocals you hear are exactly the way they sounded in the big concrete hall. That's not a technical issue.

On the upside, I think everything can be heard here, once you adjust your ears to the sound in the hall.
