These are recent recordings -- the first to appear outside Russia -- of one of the great Slavic a cappella vocal traditions. Unlike Those Bulgarians, this is no radio choir but music seized in its heartland. A couple of cuts feature old parties of waning vocal ability, but for the most part the music here has the numinous quality of total grassroots conviction for which no polish can substitute. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music
