The Russian Patriarchate Choir of Moscow evokes the authentic sound of ancient Russia. These 12 male singers are dedicated to the repertoire of Russian Orthodox Church music and traditional folk songs, much of which lay in obscurity for centuries and was suppressed by the Soviet regime. Their deep and sonorous singing evokes haunting images of the ancient Russia of a bygone age: gold-encrusted cathedral domes, rich sacred iconography, and the dark snowy nights of Russian folklore.
‘The fine male voices of the choir – unaccompanied, as Russian Church law dictates – create a powerful atmosphere of energy and devotion, of fluency and a spontaneity that effectively blends refinement with rawness.’ The Daily Telegraph
