Notes & Reviews:
"Schnittke's Psalms, settings of texts by 16th century Russsian monks, are formidable works. ...The theme is original sin, so the music is dark, sad and mystically intense most of the time. But the Psalms are also filled with radiant outbursts attesting to the power of redemption through faith...if you want to experience something undeniably powerful sung with vocal artistry that will leave you drenched in admiration, here's your ticket". -Greenfield, ARGNotes & Reviews:
