The Novospassky Monastery Choir does an excellent job of imparting the sense and meaning of the pieces.

There is another great cd with the same group on Naxos.

Russian liturgical music from the monasteries is a combination of a number of different styles. Since the Church id from the orthodox tradition, the music is influenced partly by Greek liturgical music. It also has a bit of a western Gregorian flow to it, though this is not as strong as other influences. It also has a bit of Russian folk music flair to it. Musically it is interesting, but it also has a spiritual quality to it. Perhaps because it has survived against tremendous odds during the Soviet years, it has strength to it as well.
This recording by the Novospassky Monastery Choir contains liturgical music primarily for Easter but contains other prayers and psalms as well. The CD has liner notes but no translation for the music, but for the price, this is not a complaint. The choir is strong and is able to convey both the majesty and beauty of the music.
Once again, Naxos has provided a unique quality musical experience and a budget price.

This was my first introduction to Novospassky monastery choir - at least this looks like the same record I have, though artists aren't mentioned.

Anyway, it was love at first hearing. I also sent a record to a friend in US and he fell for it, too. This is powerful music with unearthly beauty and perfection of singing. I never get tired of wondering the sounds these men make. I have seen them also live, and the performance is even more divine. A church full of people in flu season stopped coughing and sneezing the moment singing started and hardly remembered to breathe until it was over.

The music is perfect for relaxing and getting rid of petty, mundane worries and stress. Everything becomes small when you're surrounded with these men singing their hearts out.

Accolades to the Novospassky Monastery Choir who are featured on this CD. The first track is of beautiful Russian Church bells ringing, leading appropriately to the rest of the tracks. I am always and ever in awe of the a capella capabilities of Russian Church choirs. They are incredible in their harmony and accuracy with wide ranges of styles from slow to fast. This is a treat to the listening ear.
