Album: Sacred Treasures V:
From a Russian Cathedral
The collection Sacred Treasures V: From a Russian Cathedral (51'17") includes 16 contemplative and uplifting compositions for choir. These striking works by Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky and others fit in just as well broadcast on STAR'S END as they do sung at church services. Within reverberant sanctuaries, solemn voices sing out and combine in beautiful harmony. With choral texture evoking spiritual communion, the sweet melancholy and endless harmonies found in these pieces provide a vivid impression of the divine. In this magnificently expressive medium meaning comes from the relationship between notes. Sacred Treasures bestows an ethereal atmosphere upon the listener. Though meant to transmit feelings of spirituality, the music on this CD is also a tribute to the depth of human emotion.
