REVIEW THIS ITEM


Amazing! by judithlward@gmail.com

This is my favorite CD at the moment, I heard it in the Orthodox bookstore in Santa Rosa and purchased it immediately. All I can say is you won't be sorry you purchased it.

On its second CD, the St. John of San Francisco Men's Chorale continues to display an admirable commitment to exploring new repertoire within the Orthodox tradition. The choir expands its horizon by including seven tracks sung in English and several tracks sung in the Byzantine style, which is becoming more widespread even among Slavic-heritage churches, both in Russia and abroad. The considerable vocal talents of the group are unfortunately marred on this CD by some faulty recording techniques. Overall, however, this does not detract from an enjoyable listening experience, especially for lovers of the rich Russian male chorus tradition.--V. M.
