Notes and Editorial Reviews

Although many priests were arrested and most Russian Orthodox churches looted and destroyed after the Russian Revolution of 1917, the fall of the Soviet regime in the late 20th century allowed Russian Orthodoxy to be reborn. This disc presents a collection of beautiful, stirring chants written for the forty days before Easter Sunday, and providing a flavour of the traditional Russian Orthodox service.
