This is a universal-format DVD of a remarkable concert of sacred music of a type that is becoming widespread in contemporary Russia and the CIS. Part sermon, part concert, it features several introductory talks by Archpriest Artemy Vladimirov, addressed to the audience, about the challenges of contemporary life and the beneficial influence of sacred music. These are interspersed into a concert program that is original and innovative, particularly for that part of the Orthodox world: it features a number of Byzantine chant arrangements (sung in Church Slavonic), znamenny chant arrangements, and compositions mostly by the conductor, Nun Iuliania (Denisova). The second half of the concert presents a number of Belorussian folk songs and spiritual verses by contemporary Russian and Belorussian composers. The choir of young professional voices negotiates the unusual technical requirements of the music with precision, musicality, and spirited energy. It is also quite interesting to see visuals of the conductor, the singers, and the audience. Titles on the digipak are given in Russian and English; the video, however, has no subtitles, which would have made this a truly five-star production. A highly satisfying viewing and listening experience!
