Church music is a significant and extensive part of Russian national culture. The history of its appearance, its life and development, embraces many centuries, beginning with the introduction of Christianity up to the present time. In particular there was a remarkable flourishing of Russian church music at the end of the nineteenth century and in the first twenty years of the next century. It was a period when many talented and widely known composers renewed and enriched church repertoire. The present recording offers the music from the Russian Divine Liturgy, celebrated by a Bishop.

The choir is well balanced and harmoniously blended. There are no sloppy entrances, uncertain notes, or lack of suitable religious purpose to their singing. They are the genuine article - and at this price hard to beat. The program is a simple traversal of the Divine Liturgy as celebrated by a bishop, with a number of the most popular Russian religious composers represented. Notes are very good, with excellent translations and even a description of the portions of the liturgy with indications as to what is happening. Many people who love the music and have been hampered by the lack of understanding of the understanding of the liturgy will find this most helpful... - Steven E Ritter, American Record Guide, August 2001
