Notes & Reviews:

The Krysostomos Chamber Choir has established itself as one of Finland's foremost Orthodox choirs. This disc offers the magnificent church music of Virpi Leppanen and Johann von Gardner along with new works written for the choir.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Their textures are much lighter, purer, and more transparent: more characteristic of the typical Scandinavian ensemble. This choir is for the most part a good one. They sound fine in the bulk of the program. This piece struck me as imaginative and well-made music. The super-audio sound is exceptionally clear and detailed; the booklet is useful.
