This CD includes a selection of chant from across the liturgical year, as sung at the Lavra of the Caves Monastery in Kiev. Includes a 40-page full color booklet in Russian and English on the history of the Monastery and its musical style. No hymn text.
Unfortunately, for those more interested in music, most of the production effort of this CD went into the full-color booklet. It is beautiful and very informative with many delightful color photographs. On the other hand, the CD is short on chant -- but more than makes it up in the quality of the performance of those hymns offered.
