A new star has risen! This is not a statement to be made lightly about a men's choir in Russia, which is duly famous for the numerous fine choirs it has produced over the decades. The relatively new Male Choir of the Trinity-St. Sergius Representation Church in Moscow represents a new height of excellence in the rebirth of sacred choral singing in post-communist Russia. Not only is the singing first-class--suave, flexible, nuanced, with extraordinary balance and ensemble--but the repertoire is also selected from the finest body of Russian choral repertoire--the "new choral school," which grew up around the Moscow Synodal School in the early decades of the 20th century. Not coincidentally, the recording was made in the famed Synodal School Hall, next to the Moscow Conservatory, where the legendary sounds of the Synodal Choir once resounded. The quality of the presentation, the visual beauty of the booklet, the scholarly and informative article by Marina Rakhmanova (in Russian and well-translated English)--all represent new heights in Russian CD production. This CD, and others by this extraordinary choir (D134) are not to be missed!--V. M.
