Russian Easter Liturgy

Russian Easter Liturgy

The Choir of the Russian Orthodox Cathedral of Paris, under the direction of Piotr V. Spassky, performs the Divine Easter Liturgy in Russian. In the Russian Orthodox Church, Easter is traditionally celebrated with two services of Zautrenya and the Divine Easter Liturgy with the Hours. On this recording, the service begins after the Zautrenya with the Hours at Easter, during which the bread and wine are prepared for the fulfillment of the sacrament. During the Hours on other holy days, the prayers, psalms of repentance, and other parts of the service are usually read aloud. On Easter, though, all is song: there is no place for repentance but only for the joy of resurrection. Due to the length of the Liturgy, this recording features only the basic elements of the service. Liner notes accompany the recording.
