ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This stunning CD of Russian religious music of 19th and 20th century is truly an example of why a cappella choral religious music are still being performed all over the world.
This is the first Kiev Chamber Choir CD and one of the first religious music CD released in Ukraine after USSR breakdown. Earlier it was impossibly to sing and record religious music in the communist and atheistic Soviet Union and unusual rendition of Sergey Rachmaninoff vesper "To Thee We Sing" (track #3) will remind us about those times. Kiev Chamber Choir sings this vesper without words. Yes, it was impossible to sing religious music in the communist Soviet Union, but it was possible to perform music by Rachmaninoff, ONLY without religious words. It was the times and thanks God they passed.
"The Kyiv chamber choir has only 20 singers, but what singers they are - big, marvelously focused voices, the kind that might easily hold their own on the opera stage but without the kind of operatic vibrato that can make an ensemble rattle, wrote Washington Post reviewer Joan Reinthaler following their performance at the George Mason Arts Center. "They can sing wonderfully clean unisons and the basses have low E's to die for," she added.

The Municipal Kyiv Chamber Choir was founded in December of 1990. Choir members include professional singers, graduates of conservatories and musical institutes throughout Ukraine.
The choir repertoire includes medieval, renaissance, baroque, praise and worship songs; classical, romantic and modern music.

The Kyiv camber choir major awards include:
Golden Diploma on the First Robert Schummann Competition in Zwikkau (Germany, 1992)

Second Award at Langolen International Musical Eisteddfod (Wales, 1994)
Grand Prix at the XX International Church Music Festival in Hajnуwka (Poland, 1996, 2001)

This stunning and heart-wrenching CD of 18th and 19th century choral sacred music is truly an example of why classical music is still being performed hundreds of years later. The undeniable vulnerability of the human spirit, in our attempts to understand life and its mysteries, is beautifully reflected in this timeless, ghostly, a capella choral music. Revealing the deepest passions of composers such as Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky, Gretchaninov and more, the emotional performance by this award-winning choir will leave you speechless.

Beautiful & unusual
Great vocals, interesting style, unusual music. I enjoyed it very much. Like a trip to a faraway place.

Luke

Awesome music
The singing is quite beautiful, very rich in sounds and texture. Thank you very much!

Another Shining Example Why These Folks From The Ukraine Are So Sought For & Deserving Of ALL The Prestigious Awards Bestowed To Them... Heaven Can Wait, But You Can't Afford To Pass This CD Up... A Solid Performance Of Voice Patterns That Work Together So Sincerly... AWESOME Production... A+++++

Fokke

Excellent performance of great music!
As a singer in a choir that has sung severalof these pieces, I loved finding this recording. It looks like this is one of the best recordings I have heard of this music: great singers, great recording!
Absolutely recommended!!

Timothy Hollingsworth

What a cd!!!
This is perhaps the most stunning cd that I have ever listened to. To light candles, have a glass of wine, and to listen to this music must be pretty much like heaven on a good day. I actually bought two cds of this type of music and both are phenomenal. Thanks cdbaby!

Exquisite a capella choral music from the 18th and 19th centuries.
This stunning and heart-wrenching CD of 18th and 19th century choral sacred music is truly a moving example of the timelessness and perseverance of classical music, allowing us to touch the hearts and breathe the air of those who lived hundreds of years before us. The undeniable vulnerability of the human spirit, in our attempts to understand life and its mysteries, is beautifully reflected in this timeless, ghostly, a capella choral music. Revealing the deepest passions of composers such as Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky, Gretchaninov and more, the emotional performance by this award-winning choir will leave you speechless. Just as archaeologists go digging for the physical remnants of the lives and histories that preceded us, this music is the living, breathing artifact that embodies the visions and dreams of our past.
