Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov's Sacred Songs features the otherworldly performances of Ukraine's Kiev Chamber Choir, recorded in the resounding air of St. Michael's Golden Domed Monastery, an ancient building whose acoustic resonance is almost a joint performer with the choir. Silvestrov's sacred vocal music often evokes the pealing or clangour of bells, which echo through the centuries of Orthodox tradition he draws upon. Gathering works composed from 2006 through 2008, this twenty-three track collection includes "Silent Night," "O King of Heaven," "Alleluia," and more.
