A fascinating programme of sacred choral music by contemporary composers from Russia and the Baltic States.

Throughout all ages, the ancient religious texts have inspired composers, each time finding new ways of expressing universal emotions about life and death. This new recording contains sacred choral music by world famous Arvo Pärt (Magnificat), Sviridov, Schnittke, Chesnokov and Miskinis. They search for inner power, in their mysterious, stark melodic lines and open harmonies.

Young French choir Les Métaboles (they formed only 4 years) display an astonishing homogeneity and pureness, intense and serene - the perfect ensemble for these sublime and moving choral works!

Included are notes on the works and composers in French and English, biographies of the choir and conductor in French and English and sung texts in Latin, Russian, French and English.
