PaTRAM™ Stuns with Latest Release “More Honourable than the Cherubim”

Simeon Rusnak, Host of Winnipeg’s Classic 107, interviews PaTRAM Institute Male Choir octavist and Artistic Consultant on the “More Honourable than the Cherubim” recording, Elias Dubelsten.

PaTRAM™ was extremely honored to receive an invitation for an interview on Winnipeg’s Classic 107 broadcast. Classic 107 invitation stated: “Wants Interview. Awesome! It sounds great! The disc is freaking awesome!! Man, those basses!” We had to answer this request, and our own Elias Dubelsten agreed to the interview. Elias is one of the “super basses” on the new release. The uber-low bass singer, also known as an octavist, is a very rare talent, with the ability to sing a full octave below basses, going all the way down to a D1! “More Honourable than the Cherubim” features an unprecedented 9(!) octavists from five countries, making our new release truly unique and noteworthy.

Mr. Rusnak opens with “..PaTRAM is a church choir supergroup…(and) released their latest disc ’More Honourable than the Cherubim‘ in August, much to the awe and delight of choral fans and church music aficionados alike.” PaTRAM is delighted that fans are enjoying our new album!

In this candid interview, Elias Dubelsten shares his unique behind-the-scenes insights and stories about the making of PaTRAM’s new offering. Mr. Dubelsten has participated in four PaTRAM recordings with both the PaTRAM Institute Singers™ (Mixed choir) and the PaTRAM Institute Male Choir™ and offers a unique, singers-point-of-view perspective on what it takes to create a masterpiece.

The host of Classic 107 invites you to “… hear more about the unprecedented number of octavists—exceptionally deep-ranged basses—who came together to add the glorious subterranean rumble to the album; how the Ottawa-based Dubelsten came to join PaTRAM; the special circumstances surrounding the recording of the album in Saratov, Russia; and, more!”
