A DSD & DXD Exclusive from NativeDSD Music, Not Available on SACD!
We are very pleased to present our second PaTRAM Institute album in Stereo and Multichannel DSD and DXD at the NativeDSD Music store. The new album features an original English language recording of Orthodox choral music commissioned from Dr. Kurt Sander.
The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom was recorded in August of 2017 under the beautiful, soaring, and magnificently frescoed cupola of New Gracanica Church at the New Gracanica Serbian Orthodox Monastery outside of Chicago. The result of great musicianship, vocal prowess, and exceptional acoustics is nothing shy of sensational. Bravo to the superb leadership of conductor Dr. Peter Jermihov!
The Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom by Kurt Sander is unique in several respects. Within the body of repertoire contained in the Russianbased jurisdictions of North America (Moscow Patriarchate, Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, and the Orthodox Church in America), it is the first and only complete setting of the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom in English. Rooted in the 19th Century Russian models of such masters as Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Grachaninoff, and others, Sander’s Liturgy grows out of the monumental choral edifices of these masters and rightfully belongs in their midst.
