Album Remarks & Appraisals:

"The Slavyanka Chorus is an ensemble based in San Francisco that specializes in Russian repertoire...On the whole, they produce an enjoyable program here. Clearly, the performers love these rich, expressive songs that bubble up from the emotional heart of Mother Russia. Pleasant performances of selections like 'The Volga Boatmen'...plus patriotic marches, and bits of sacred fare from the Orthodox Church await you in this generous anthology..." -Greenfield, ARG
