Rare choral gems and celebrated sacred music from the Russian Orthodox Church.

Russian choral music has been a feature in Tenebrae’s concert performances since the choir’s inception almost 20 years ago, and this exquisite collection includes some little-known gems, rarely heard outside Russia, as well as some familiar favourites from this vast area of choral repertoire. Most Christian liturgies are strongly associated with singing, but none are defined by the intoned human voice quite like those of the Eastern Orthodox Churches. Be enchanted by Tenebrae’s interpretation of this uniquely spiritual repertoire, which has won international acclaim:
