Moscow New Choir
Sviridov - Russian A Cappella Music

Pushkin's Garland
Three Choruses from Tsar Feodor Ioannovich
Songs of Troubled Times
Night Clouds

"Sviridov balances simplicity and originality to perfection in his Three Choruses for Tolstoy's Tsar Feodor Ioannovich. The melodic lines are cleanly projected by members of Moscow New Choir, with scrupulous concern for text, the harmonies (Orthodox with a Sviridov twist) atmospherically supportive - .Sviridov's emotional range is wider, and it is incredible just how many effects and subtleties he achieves. This marvellous choir's bright, intelligent and dynamically varied approach, their attention perfectly focused on both the words and the music, should help to establish the reputation of Pushkin's Garland as one of the richest Russian choral works of the 20th century as well as a firstrate tribute to Russia's greatest poet....the rich blend of Orthodox ritual and passionate response in the 'child's burial' of Night Clouds seems to touch a special emotional chord - Sviridov's late-flowering choral garlands and wreaths; they should enter the repertoire of our own chamber choirs sooner rather than later."- Gramophone
