Purchase Our First CD

“Praise the Lord, All Ye Nations” is the first album of our Patriarch Tikhon Choir, a 30-voice mixed choir that brings together vocalists and choral musicians from the United States, Canada, and Russia.

The recording includes works from the Orthodox All-Night Vigil and Divine Liturgy ranging from austere, centuries-old Znamenny Chants to sumptuous polyphonic works by such Russian masters as Dmitry Bortniansky, Alexander Gretchaninoff, and Sergei Rachmaninoff. Also featured on the program are compositions and arrangements by contemporary Orthodox composers, Benedict Sheehan and Sergei Trubachev. In keeping with the choir’s multi-cultural approach, the CD includes selections in Church Slavonic and in English.

The ensemble is under the direction of Maestro Vladimir Gorbik, one the most prominent church musicians in Russia today. Since 1996 he has served as the choir director at the Moscow Representation Church (Metochion) of the Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Monastery.
