Throughout its long history the Don Cossack Choir sang for millions of wildly appreciative listeners on every continent of the world, and made scores of recordings, dating from the 1920s to the 1960s. Their style was flamboyant, even theatrical at times, but it was gripping in its compelling sincerity and emotional intensity. In the realm of Russian church singing, the one place where the Cossacks' style is perhaps most appropriate is the Paschal Matins service, with its exclamatory exchanges among clergy, choir, and people, and the wild enthusiam of the Paschal Canon and the Paschal Stichera "Let God arise." All this is captured on this recording, compiled and restored by Jaroff's collaborators and their heirs in Holland. Informative notes about the history of the Choir are in given in English, as are the titles. The sacred tracks on this unique historical sound document are identical to those on CD B082b in our catalog, but in this edition there is an extra bonus of 9 additional secular tracks amounting to more than 35 minutes of music.--V.
