This, the third CD by the Diakonia Choir of San Francisco, features the works of Sergei Riabtchenko, a prolific composer of Orthodox church music, who, somewhat paradoxically, has flourished in the United States, rather than in the country of his origin, Russia. A graduate of the Moscow Conservatory and a professional cellist, Riabtchenko has absorbed some of the best precedents of Russian monastic chant and such Moscow-School composers as Kastalsky and Trubachov. The resulting works, though original compositions, are so steeped in tradition that they sound as if they emanate from the Russian heartland. This album will be enjoyed by all who love the Russian male chorus sound, as well as by those who like to keep abreast of “what’s new” in the realm of Orthodox sacred choral music.—V. M.
