Notes & Reviews:
The choir itself is excellent, with particularly fine sopranos who can chant high above the others in beautifully pitched thirds; while there is, as ever in Russian church choirs, a splendid bass section that can underpin the textures with effortlessly rich low Cs.
BBC Music Magazine, March 2015
Russian singers are a big help in this work, and as a performance this ranks high among available versions.
