Georgy Sviridov (1915-1998) was one of the greatest Russian composers of choral music in the latter half of the 20th century. However, since most of his life was lived under Communism, he did not overtly write sacred music. Most of his sacred works–on a variety of liturgical and non-liturgical texts–only came to light after the fall of Communism. This CD represents the "first-fruits" of the composer's many years of carrying this music within himself–the most complete recording to date of these remarkable works. At times profoundly devotional, at other times, powerfully dramatic, they represent the strivings of a composer whose deep thinking and feeling about spiritual and churchly things found expression in his masterful compositional craftsmanship. The superb and subtle performances by the "Credo" Chamber Choir do these works justice. This CD is a 'must have' for anyone who is interested in the complex musical developments of the Russian choral art under and after the Soviets. It will also be enjoyed by all who love and appreciate beautiful choral singing.--V.M.
