Fantastic recording of music of exceptional power and beauty. There is something about the Russian church music tradition that I always find very moving, powerful, and at the same time very restful.
Many musicians are not even aware that Rimsky-Korsakov wrote choral music. This volume presents all forty of Rimsky-Korsakov's sacred choral compositions and chant arrangements, written while he was affiliated with the Imperial Court Chapel in St. Petersburg. Russian scholar Marina Rakhmanova provides detailed historical and analytical background, revealing aspects of the composer's world-view and creativity never previously discussed in the musical literature.less
