I WILL SING UNTO THE LORD
In 2006, the Summer School of Orthodox Liturgical Music marked the fifteenth anniversary of its founding. The recording project brought together approximately 30 singers under the direction of Nikolai Myshkin, a Moscow choir director who has been a long–time faculty member at the School. The repertoire and the style of singing are reflective of the School’s musical orientation—preserving the best traditions of the “new Russian Choral School”. More rehearsal and recording time would have likely yielded a slightly more polished product—the entire project was accomplished with only two rehearsals and four days of recording sessions. Nevertheless, the recording is a tribute to the dedication and perseverance of the School’s founders, faculty, and supporters, who have created an unparalleled institution for cultivating the art of Russian Orthodox liturgical singing outside of Russia.
