All the pieces and performances are infused with a deeply devotional, solemn and lyrical quality. The singing, by top choirs and ensembles from Russia, Ukraine, Estonia, Bulgaria and the USAis spacious and warm, creating an atmosphere of holiness and benediction. The effect is a sonic tapestry where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and the individual elements of the compilation become movements in a choral symphony of timeless beauty.
