Russian and Ukrainian Liturgical Chants from the 16th-17th Century

This recording features a selection of Russian and Ukrainian Orthodox hymns sung by the Svetoslav Obretenov Bulgarian Choir under the direction of Georgi Robev. These hymns are sung in the traditional liturgical style of unaccompanied monophonic (all voices singing the same melody in unison) or polyphonic (voices singing multiple melodies at the same time) singing. Covering a wide range of occasions in the Orthodox liturgy, the album includes the Ukrainian Christmas song “Shedshe Trye Tsary.”
