Dr. Vladimir Morosan, founder of the publishing house, Musica Russica, has earned his reputation as the foremost authority on the subject of Russian choral music. He has dedicated over 30 years of effort to promoting this tradition in the English-speaking musical world. His extraordinary knowledge was given particular recognition at the this year’s Grammy Awards, held on February 8, by Craig Johnson, artistic director and conductor of Conspirare, a choral ensemble based in Austin, Texas.
Conspirare was awarded the Grammy for Best Choral Performance of the year. Their album, “The Sacred Spirit of Russia,” was composed entirely of Russian Orthodox sacred music published by Musica Russica, and personally selected and coached by Dr. Morosan.
