A selection of twenty hymns and chants from the Paschal Vigil, introduced with the festal ringing of bells. Sung in Church Slavonic to old Russian melodies (Valaam, Znamenny and plain chant) by St Elizabeth Convent choir, a female choir under the direction of Novice Irina Denisova. No liner notes booklet; simple & economical packaging, track listing in Russian and English.
ReviewBy: Benjamin Williams
This recording of the hymns of Holy Pascha is unique in its two-fold approach: it combines the Odes of the Canon from the Matins service of the Resurrection with the Resurrection hymns themselves, and does so with a large selection of old chant forms like Valaam and Greek chant. This experience is heightened by the fact that the chants are professionally performed by a female choir of nuns who not only deliver a quite unusual sound for ?Russian liturgical music? (which is usually male voice choirs), but do glorious and joyous manner. The quality of the recording equals that of the performance, and with the added dimension of hearing these familiar Paschal hymns sung by female voices, the result is a very festive experience of the services of Holy Pascha.
