FLIP THROUGH THE BOOKLET
“This recording is without a doubt in my mind as authentic as one could possibly hope for, so deeply rooted in and genuinely conveys the Russian Orthodox tradition, spirtuality, ethos and sound. Truly a landmark recording; one need not look any further for anything more definitive. I just got my copy today – it's really fabulous, so very luminous, rich in color, spacious and deeply spiritual. The octavist section was the richest and deepest section I've ever been a part of. It was such an honor to have been part of this project.”
– Glenn Miller, Basso Profundo
