The Choir Directors School at the Moscow Theological Academy has a history going back to 1947. With the rebirth of the Orthodox Church in Russia, the School has developed a full 3-year-long course of study for over 100 students, many of whom are women who will become clergy wives in the future and direct choirs in parishes around the vast territory of Russia. This CD presents a number of Paschal hymns sung artfully and tastefully by the 40-voice women's choir. The choir's execution attests to the high level of musical training and liturgical musicianship that the School's program has finally achieved, after many years of struggle during the difficult years under Communism, and it bodes well for the future leadership of liturgical singing in parishes of the Russian Orthodox Church. The slim booklet is in Russian only, but the bright, clear, tuneful voices speak for themselves, and will be enjoyed greatly by anyone who appreciates the sound of fine women's choir singing. --V.M.
