Description:  Dedicated to the Memory of Protopresbyter Valery Lukianov

Reference Recordings® is very pleased to present the third release in our series from the PaTRAM Institute™, rising stars whose previous two albums on our label, Teach Me Thy Statutes and The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, have been honored with GRAMMY® nominations for Best Choral Performance. The music performed on this new recording of Russian Orthodox choral music comprises works of many great Russian composers, all celebrating the theme of Russian Orthodox hymns dedicated to the Virgin Mary.

Blessed Art Thou among Women is performed by the PaTRAM Institute Singers™, a professional group of Russian and American male and female vocalists, joined by soloists Glenn Miller (basso profundo), Fotina Naumenko (soprano), Protodeacon Leonid Roschko, and two vocal quartets.

Conductor Peter Jermihov writes: “We are privileged to present a program of masterpieces, both those that are rarely or never heard before and those that have worked their way into the rank­-and-­file of tradition. We are pleased, also, to bring a personal dimension to this project, honoring the memory of a special man, Fr. Valery Lukianov, with a lasting musical tribute.”
