On May 18th, 2018, Reference Recordings released PaTRAM’s latest CD, “Teach Me Thy Statutes”.
There are a number of outlets where the CD can be purchased or downloaded including:
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.
“Really, this is a remarkable recording… Is there nothing this choir can’t do, no challenge to which they can’t rise? Of course, so much credit is due to Gorbik’s inspiring leadership, his devotion to, and affinity for, this music laid bare in every bar. Intensely beautiful singing and sound; quite simply, choral albums don’t come much better than this.” —Dan Morgan, MusicWeb International
