The sacred music of the New Russian Choral School features sublime settings of the Russian Orthodox liturgy that draw on a rich history of Orthodox chants and native traditions, creating music of unprecedented color and textural richness. Following the lead of Tchaikovsky, composers such as Kastalsky, Gretchaninov, Tchesnokov, Rachmaninov and a host of others have left us a treasure-trove of musical delights.
