If you want to know why the New York Times and Washington Post wrote about this choir and why they were invited to the White House to sing during the annual VIP viewing of the Christmas-decorated White House, than this album will give you the answer.This CD represents Ukrainian sacred music of so-called Baroque-period which is the highest achievement of Ukrainian musical heritage, reflecting revival of creative forces of the Ukrainian people at the latter half of the 17th and early 18th century.The album starts with two chants by Nikolai Diletsky, the classic of choral polyphony, is recently opened and yet a little known for the wide audience. To him belongs the first written work about problems of the musical theory, aesthetics and composition. Maxim Berezovsky /1745-1777/ was an unusual phenomenon who influenced on the development of musical art not only in the Ukraine. It was him who opened Ukrainian music to Europe. He was born in the small Ukrainian town Glukhovo where he gained his early musical education at the famous Tsar's Music Cappella School. Later he went to Italy to study in Bologna and became the academician of Bologna Academy of Philharmonics.. His concerto "Do Not Forsake Me" takes a special place in his creativity. The concerto has a deep philosophic sense and filled with dramatic. It is a confession of haggard composer's soul who very soon was tragically lost at age of 32 years. _____ Dimitry Bortnyansky /1751-1825/ was, in his day, the most famous composer in the Russian Empire and was named the "Russian Mozart"- ironic as he was born in Glukhovo of Ukraine. He also studied in Italy where he composed several operas now lost. He made a great contribution to development of Ukrainian and Russian sacred music. He based his music on national traditions
