Reference Recordings is very pleased to present the third release in our series from the PaTRAM Institute, rising stars whose previous two albums on our label, Teach Me Thy Statutes (FR-727SACD) and The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom (FR-731), have been honored with Grammy® nominations for Best Choral Performance. The music performed on this new recording of Russian Orthodox choral music comprises works of many great Russian composers, all celebrating the theme of Russian Orthodox hymns dedicated to the Virgin Mary.

REVIEW:

This outstanding choral ensemble, assembled from some of the finest choral singers across North America, perform an array of 25 individual works dedicated to the Mother of God, spanning over three centuries. Throughout the program, there are moments of exquisite choral beauty, punctuated by outstanding solo vocal contributions.

The CD booklet contains extensive program notes written by the conductor himself, Maestro Peter Jermihov, who combines his scholarly perspective and performer’s insights to enrich the listeners’ experience with his incisive commentary.
