Notes & Reviews:

A collection of Russian sacred music, featuring new choral settings of well-known themes by Borodin. Robin White has set the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis, plus verses from Psalm 101, to three of Borodin's best tunes, in a way that sounds wholly natural and convincing.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Henry Wood Hall; St. Jude-on-the-Hill (2011-11-07&2012-01-29_2012-).
