Pavel Grigorievich Chesnokov - Basso Profondo

Unravels sinew from the bones of the dead. Makes me weep. I've been trying to find Russian Orthodox choir music (Chesnokov or other) on vinyl for a long time. No luck. Will have to make do with this.

Keep an eye out for Rachmaninov Vespers. I would say that it is probably the most popular Orthodox piece to make it to the West. It's got to be on vinyl somewhere (but possibly not with a Russian choir).

I wondered about fact, I think I saw a concert of his music at the Chan center years ago.

Thanks for the tip.
