Notes & Reviews:

Two of Britain's finest collegiate choirs join forces and cross a continent to take on the sublime expressiveness of Rodion Shchedrin's 'Russian liturgy,' an astonishing statement of faith composed in the early days of perestroika. Shchedrin's choral tableaux juxtapose tenderness with bracing sonic impact, and are shadowed throughout by the plangent voice of a solo oboe representing the soul of the Russian people. This groundbreaking choral partnership committed the work to disc following acclaimed UK premiere concert performances at the Spitalfields and Oundle festivals in the summer of 2008. The booklet notes include a fascinating interview with the composer.
