The excellent Ukrainian Chamber Choir “Credo” is known to our customers through their fine recording of Georgy Sviridov’s “Motets and Prayers” (cat. No. A105). On this disc, they offer a number of beautiful choral selections by a host of composers—both well-known figures such as Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff and lesser-known contemporary Ukrainian composers. The unifying concept behind this excellent program is Kievan Chant, which is presented here in its many guises through the centuries, from unison chant to elaborate polyphonic arrangements. Both the repertoire and the quality of the singing on this disc will be a revelation to lovers of Orthodox liturgical music as well as all lovers of fine choral singing. The titles and the booklet are in Ukrainian only. --V.M.
