The Choir of the Minsk SS Peter and Paul Cathedral is known to our listeners from their contributions to the "Chants of the Russian Emigres" series (Volumes 1 and 3, our catalog nos. A097 and C97, currently out of print). The choir is not large, but sings with fine balance and ensemble. The choice of repertoire on this CD repertoire is most attractive, focusing on simple arrangements of traditional Lenten and Paschal chants, including a number from various monastic repertories; this imparts a particularly prayerful character to the recording. The 24-page booklet contains an excellent explanation of the services of the Lent, Holy Week and and Holy Pascha (in Russian only). Titles are given in Russian and English.
