Whoever desires to listen to serious music, and whoever has not lost the capacity to distinguish the genuine from the false, will surely be very interested in this recording. 
Metropolitan Hilarion (Alfeyev) is a world famous theologian and historian, writer and composer. His music is a special type of “spiritual creativity”, a semantic field that is both cerebral and vivid. 

On the whole, his works can be classified into two categories: liturgical and non-liturgical. Among the former are choral works intended for performance in church services (All Night Vigil, 2006; Divine Liturgy, 2006). Among the latter are compositions meant for concert performance (for example, St Matthew Passion, 2008). On this new album, Metropolitan Hilarion’s works, on the one hand, offer originality in each category, and, on the other hand, are characterised by a certain stylistic communality, an individual, authorial discourse. If the semantic side is characterised by complexity and depth, on the musical constructive side there is a simplicity and perceptive accessibility.

Classical CD Review

Fascinating music that will doubtless be new to most, and the recording made in a Moscow studio has the sound of a large cathedral with effective use of multichannels.
