Notes & Reviews:

"The most interesting discovery to be made on this anthology is Sviridov's choral music, both sacred and profane. A Russian nineteenth-centrury ancestry is audible in his work, and he is clearly following in the footsteps of Rachmaninov with a splendid sureness of technique...[the] real showcase here is the Grechaninov 'Creed'. This piece is really not much more than chords, but what chords!...highly recommended." -IWGM, Gramophone

'Sensitive readings of the utmost sensitivity and control' (Gramophone)

'Uniformly charismatic performances. Fine engineering and notes too. Highly recommended' (Fanfare, USA)
