Russia's first professional composer of sacred music, Dmitry Bortniansky (1751–1825), saved Russian music from being swept away before the Western wave, as the liner notes state. Later composers, such as Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff, followed Bortniansky’s methods, establishing liturgical music as a viable art form. The works of all three composers, and others, are featured on this recording. The album showcases the Orthodox Cathedral Choir of Paris, a famous choir that has preserved the Russian liturgical tradition.

The Church of Saints Philip and James (Croatian: Crkva svetih Filipa i Jakova) is a Roman Catholic church in Vukovar, Croatia. The church was built from 1723 till 1732, when it was blessed by Marko Dragojević. In 1738 it was dedicated by Sigismund Berenyi. In 1897 it was expanded according to the plans of Franz Langerberg and later Richard Jordan. On 24 May 1899 the renovated and expanded church was dedicated by Anđelko Voršak. In 1911 it was successfully painted with fresco paintings.
The Church needs musicians. How many sacred works have been composed through the centuries by people deeply imbued with the sense of the mystery! The faith of countless believers has been nourished by melodies flowing from the hearts of other believers, either introduced into the liturgy or used as an aid to dignified worship. In song, faith is experienced as vibrant joy, love, and confident expectation of the saving intervention of God. ( Saint Pope John Paul II, Letter to Artists ). The treasure of sacred music is to be preserved and fostered with great care. In addition to its Sunday duties, the Cathedral Choir takes principal responsibility for the music on major feast days, for Christmas, and for the services of Holy Week. Rehearsal: 7:00-8:30 pm Wednesdays. Sunday Liturgy: 11:00 am Mass (10:30 warmup). The Men’s Schola is an ensemble of male singers, open to ages 15 and older.

This glorious recording from the choir of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle includes The Lamb, perhaps one of the best-known choral works of the late twentieth century. Composer: John Tavener Performer: James Oxley, Roger Judd, Matthew Brook Conductor: Christopher Robinson Orchestra/Ensemble: Windsor Castle St. George's Chapel Choir. I wouldn't make that complaint about any of the other pieces on this disc, nor would I fault any of the other performances here. I'm generally a fan of English choirs, and the Choir of St. George's Chapel, Windsor Chapel, under Christopher Robinson's direction, is no exception. They sing with impressive purity, accuracy, and flexibility. 10.
