AllMusic Review by

A very good sampler, it is all vocal: some solo, some small ensemble, some large choruses, and some with orchestral accompaniment. The female singers seem to share a sweetness and a yearning quality that is distinctive and very appealing. Regions represented include Moscow, Oriol, Pskov, Drasnodar (Cossacks), Kirov, Saratov, Ulianovsk, Siberia, Arkhangeisk, Volgoda, Daluga, Voronezh, Kursk, Rostov, and Sverdlovsk. Song titles and credits are translated into English.
