Renowned Oktavist, Glenn Miller, Shares His Thoughts On PaTRAM™ Holy Land Tour

Glenn Miller, renowned for his unique basso profundo voice, has shared his God-given talent with PaTRAM Institute for many years, appearing on the PaTRAM Institute Singers’ recordings of “The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom” and “Blessed Art Thou among Women”,  which were released in 2018 and 2019, respectively.

Most recently, Glenn participated with the PaTRAM 52 member, all-male ensemble that traveled to the Holy Land to record Rachmaninoff’s “All-Night Vigil”, sing concerts and take part in our pilgrimage. We thought our subscribers would enjoy a very special, short speech that took place at our farewell banquet in Bethlehem, following the completion of the “All-Night Vigil” recording in June 2022.

Glenn was able to eloquently capture what all of us felt during our journey in Israel and the significance of PaTRAM’s recording of Rachmaninoff’s divine masterpiece in the Holy Land. Glenn Miller has sung the Rachmaninoff masterwork for 30 years. With joy he says, “each time has lead to this.” Click on the image below.

Please GIVE TODAY to hear the music that will deepen your spiritual well of faith.

We have reached 10% of our goal of $30,000. Every gift is deeply appreciated. Thank you!

PaTRAM Institute™ Initiates A Go Fund Me Campaign To Raise Critical Funding For Completion Of Their Recording of Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil

PaTRAM™ CEO, Tatiana Geringer, on behalf of PaTRAM Institute™, has created a GoFundMe campaign to finance the completion of PaTRAM’s most recent recording of the epic Rachmaninoff masterpiece, the “All-Night Vigil” for Male Choir.

This past June PaTRAM overcame innumerable obstacles, including the pandemic and challenging political events, to bring 52 male choristers from the US, Canada, Serbia, Australia and Russia, to the Holy Land to record this stunning sacred music.

The CD is recorded, but now it must be mastered and prepared for PaTRAM to share with you. We are all keenly aware of the recent dramatic increases in prices for everything from food to transportation. Our project was significantly impacted by these unexpected increases, and the funds to complete the Rachmaninoff in the Holy Land project have run out.

The MOST IMPORTANT FINAL PHASE of the project is in jeopardy!

Today PaTRAM must urgently raise $30,000 to bring the Rachmaninoff “All-Night Vigil” to the world, and we are asking you and anyone else who is moved by this incredibly soulful music, to donate to this effort on PaTRAM’s GoFundMe page. The mastering of the CD must be done in 2022 in order for the CD to be ready for public distribution in 2023.

Join Tatiana in bringing Rachmaninoff’s ethereal masterpiece of spiritual artistry to life! Read her story and see how you can make the difference!

As always, your help is GREATLY appreciated!


PaTRAM Institute Celebrates the Elevation of Bishop Nicholas to ROCOR First Hierarch

With great joy, we share the announcement of the election of His Grace Nicholas, Bishop of Manhattan as the First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad, Metropolitan of Eastern America and New York. The election took place on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, with the rite of enthronement of His Eminence Nicholas, taking place this weekend.

Beloved and admired by his flock as a kind, humble and wise shepherd, Vladyka Nicholas has now become the guiding light of the ROCOR Church.


Vladyka Nicholas is a longtime and active supporter of PaTRAM Institute and our mission to preserve and foster the liturgical music of our Church. It is of note that PaTRAM was greatly honored and blessed to have Vladyka Nicholas accompany our choir on two of our recent projects.


In 2019, with the special permission and blessing of Metropolitan Hilarion, of blessed memory, the Kursk Root Mother of God of the Sign Icon, with Vladyka Nicholas as her guardian and primary caretaker, traveled with the PaTRAM Institute Male Choir to Saratov, Russia to record the “More Honourable than the Cherubim” album, perform a concert and sing services. During our time in Saratov, more than 18,000 believers and those new to the faith venerated the holy and magnificent Wonderworking Kursk Root icon.

This past June Vladyka Nicholas accompanied the PaTRAM Male Choir to the cradle of Christianity, the Holy Land! The PaTRAM Choir was blessed to sing hierarchical liturgies celebrated by His Eminence Nicholas at the Ascension monastery church atop Mount of Olives, St. Mary Magdalene monastery church in Gethsemane and even at Golgotha in the complex of the Holy Sepulchre. Vladyka blessed our group in the Jordan River, served a moleben and panikhida on Mount Tabor and, along with His Grace Bishop Theodosy of Seattle, was our spiritual father throughout our journey in the holiest of holy. Below are some photos of this epic trip.
