There is a wealth of choral music associated with the liturgy from the Eastern Orthodox Churches, dating back to the 16th Century and evolving more-or-less uninterrupted until the sudden decline in the Church's fortunes which accompanied the Bolshevik Rebellion in 1917. This programme includes works from two of the greatest names in Russian music, Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, but also some gems by far less well known composers, such as Chesnokov, Golovanov and Kalinnikov, rarely sung outside Russia.
