Purchase Our Latest CD

On May 18th, 2018, Reference Recordings released PaTRAM’s latest CD, “Teach Me Thy Statutes”.

Written by the famed Russian composer, Pavel Chesnokov, and superbly performed by the PaTRAM Institute Male Choir (42 vocalists with a massive bass section), these pieces represent some of the Orthodox world’s greatest music. This historic work immerses the listener into the beautiful Russian monastic style of singing through its fullness and richness of sonority. The new HDCD quality & SACD 5.0 (Super Audio Recording) release was recorded by the multi-Grammy winner and nominee, SoundMirror in Saratov, Russia under the baton of highly-esteemed conductor Vladimir Gorbik and is distributed by multi-Grammy recording company, Reference Recordings.
