Notes & Reviews:

"This is the second recording of the complete score for Eisenstein's epic film in two parts devoted to the life of the notoriously cruel Tsar Ivan. Polyansky has, by far, the best chorus: elegant and refined, with a deliciously creamy tone. That's a considerable advantage, given the large quantity of orthodox Church music that was used in these films." - Godell, ARG
