The recording illustrates a particular role given to a soloist within the structure of the Orthodox liturgy, in this case sung by the great tenor Nicolai Gedda. Liner notes with commentary and complete hymn text in English.
ReviewBy: Vladimir Morosan
Silken-voiced tenor Nicolai Gedda manifests his Russian Orthodox roots in this recording, as he gives reverent and tasteful interpretations to traditional repertoire, in some cases arranged especially for him.
