Product Description

Item No. 008873

By Conspirare, conducted by Craig Hella Johnson

“The Sacred Spirit of Russia” by Conspirare
won the 2015 Grammy Award for Best Choral Performance!


What makes this CD a five-star production worthy of a Grammy? First, the CD's concept—expressing the "sacred spirit of Russia" by assembling some of the finest sacred repertoire of the 20th century, sung in the context of a festive cathedral-style Divine Liturgy for the Nativity of Christ. The all-star lineup of musical selections is thoroughly unique to this CD, including several works—by Kastalsky, Chesnokov, and Ilyashenko—that have never been recorded anywhere in the world, much less anywhere outside of Russia. Works by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Ippolitov-Ivanov, Gretchaninoff, Kedroff, and Sviridov round out the program.

Second, the performance: the 42-voice ensemble, one of America's top professional choirs, demonstrates the broad-ranging and varied palette of sound and expression—from gentle subtlety to raw power—that is necessary to bring this rich repertoire to life. They have paid careful attention to matters of diction, phrasing, and style, approaching a level of authenticity seldom achieved by non-Russian choral groups.

This is a CD that every lover of Orthodox music will enjoy owning! Experience and share the TRUE Spirit of Russia!
