REVIEW THIS ITEM

The “Rozhdestvo” Choir of Soloists, numbering twelve fine singers, offers a distinctly “chamber” rendition of Rachmaninoff’s  Liturgy of St John Chrysostom. In some passages this means the choir sings one voice on a part. As a result, the textures and individual lines of Rachmaninoff’s choral score emerge with an extra clarity (despite a somewhat muffled recording technique) that is sometimes lacking in recordings by larger choirs. The ensemble achieves an impressive range of dynamic shadings, but unfortunately, their intonation proves to be fragile at times. The booklet (in Russian and English) contains very interesting period reviews and critical perspectives of Rachmaninoff’s first attempt to write a major sacred work—these alone are worth the price of the CD! There are no text translations given, however. This disc is available in limited quantities and will likely not be available in the future. Don’t miss this opportunity to own another recording and gain another perspective of Rachmaninoff’s early masterpiece.
