Patriarchate Choir

 Patriarchate Choir

Male Choral Chorus from Russia.

Founded by Anatoly Grindenko in 1983, the 13 members of the Russian Patriarchate Choir are all Moscow Orthodox Church singers who are dedicated scholars of the repertoire for male voices and who led the way in the rediscovery of Orthodox church music in the late years of the Soviet regime. At this time - when the music was far from approved by the government - the choir spent years decoding ancient manuscripts and giving the first performances of works that had lain in obscurity for centuries. The all-Russian program will include Russian liturgical and folk music by Rachmaninoff, Bartnyanski, Grechaninov, and Gontcharov.
