Although Kastalsky composed many settings of the various hymns from the Divine Liturgy, the present recording contains the only complete Liturgy, for treble voices, which he published as a separate opus. In this premier recording of this work, the Boys' Choir of the Bolshoi Theater brings out the delicate subtlety of Kastalsky's choral writing. The boys' tone can be best described as "silvery" (quite different from British or German boys' choirs), which correlates well with the descriptions one reads of the famed Moscow Synodal Choir which premiered this work. The choir also displays a broad range of dynamic effects. The sacred repertoire presented in addition to the Kastalsky is but a tiny fraction of what Russian composers have written and arranged for treble voices.--a rare but welcome glimpse of treasures yet to be discovered.--V.M.
