Larry Jackson introduces three works of liturgical music by three different Russian composers, Tchaikovsky, Grechaninov and Kalinnikov. Performers include the Russian Orthodox Cathedral Choir of Paris, the Cathédrale Saint-Alexandre-Nevski Choir, also of Paris, and the St. John’s of Damascus Choir of Essen Germany.
