Notes and Editorial Reviews

This selection is a Hybrid Multichannel Super Audio CD. The Stereo Hybrid SACD program can be played on any standard compact disc player. The DSD Surround and Stereo programs require an SACD player for playback.

"Gedda is not the first opera star to record Russian liturgical music (Boris Christoff did, for one), and his contribution is not to be discounted. He adds enormously to the total effect. The Paris choir is superb, preserving their grasp of the idiom even after decades in exile…. Taken on its own terms, this program will give much listening pleasure to anyone who simply wishes to bask in the sound of beautiful singing."

--J. F. Weber, FANFARE
