Notes & Reviews:

This issue of the liturgy in 2CD format presents a fantastic opportunity to acquire this striking but largely neglected masterpiece that is a fine testament to the late 19th/early 20th century nationalist attempts to revive traditional Russian chant. Richly scored in four-part harmony (a typical feature of sacred music from that time), it is impressively delivered here by the Russian State Symphony Capella under their esteemed director, Polyansky.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
This is one of the few currently available classic performances of the work from a Russian choir and conductor, and it may well be the best. In the past couple of decades, many top western choirs have recorded the great Russian choral classics (particularly the Vespers), and many of their efforts are entirely praiseworthy. Still, there's really no substitute for the raw power, over-the-top sacred emotion, and full-throated, bass-dominated sound that only a genuine Russian choir like this one brings to bear.
