Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"The massed forces of the Phoenix Bach Choir and the Kansas City Chorale (both are professional groups) make a formidable choral machine, one which seems to produce an unending wave of smoothly blended sound. If Grechaninov's music is sentimental in the best sense, this performance has an integrity and honesty to it which I find profoundly moving. " -BBC Music Magazine's Vocal/Choral CD of the Month, May 2007

Gramophone Magazine
... The Seven Days of the Passion is a milestone in the history of Russian choral literature. ... Charles Bruffy and his singers... understand this fully, rejoicing in the work's technical challenges and its vast range of colour and pacing it superbly.
