Gloriae Dei Cantores, a fine professional-level choir based in Orleans, MA, are no strangers to Russian sacred choral music. They first discovered the Russian repertoire over twenty years ago, in connection with the celebration of the Millennium of Russian Christianity in 1988. They've toured Russia on more than one occasion and have been invited to sing in Russian Patriarchal services. In the early 1990s they recorded a marvelous historical overview of Russian sacred music, "The Sacred Song of Russia" (our catalog C003), which has been a perennial best-seller. On this CD they return to plumb the depths of the Russian choral tradition, focusing on three masters who dominated the repertoire in the late 19th, early 20th, and mid- to late 20th centuries, respectively--Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, and Sviridov. As before, Gloriae Dei Cantores demonstrate how well a non-Russian choir can enter into and master the essence of Russian sacred music. The beautiful booklet contains an informative article about the music and texts in phonetics and English. If you enjoyed "Sacred Song of Russia," you will not want to miss "Unto Ages of Ages."--V.M.
