Grande Liturgie: Orthodoxe Slave Review

by AllMusic

This is an album of Eastern Orthodox liturgical music recorded in the Nevsky Cathedral in Sofia, Bulgaria. The nine second spiraling reverberation of this magnificent domed sanctuary adds an extraordinary spatial dimension. The sopranos seem to fly, the basses are the voice of the earth, and the massed choir is a multitonal cloud of sound.
