Notes & Reviews:

Passion Week is a long-lost choral masterpiece composed by Rimsky-Korsakov's favorite student, heir apparent and son-in-law, Maximilian Steinberg. A product of his interest in the sacred and mystical, it is a tour de force of the systematic use of medieval Church Slavonic chant melodies and shares with Rachmaninov's All-Night Vigil the colorful use of choral textures. Steinberg's settings are complex and rich, with a diverse and sometimes daring harmonic palette, offering eleven movements of distinctive and expressive content that reveal an artist's search for at a time of increasing hostility to religion.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2016
Steinberg creates a magnificent, richly textured choral work.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2016
All of the solo singers have exemplary tone and diction, and the choir's blend is creamy and devoid of rough edges. Highlights include Timothy Knot's baritone solo in 'Thy bridal chamber' and the clusters at the opening of 'The noble Joseph'. Mention should be made, too, of the extraordinary contribution made by the Michigan-based basso profundo Glenn Miller... [a] newly restored masterpiece.
