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.
