Songs You May Have Missed #247

Slavyanka Men’s Chorus: “Otche Nash” (“Our Father”) (1992)

The 25-member San Francisco-based Slavyanka Men’s Chorus sings mostly in Russian, although most of them don’t speak Russian.

The rich harmonic textures and unusual tonalities of Russian sacred music can be utterly transporting, and make it a great palette cleanser from your usual. Unless of course this is what you listen to every day, in which case I’d recommend Dying Fetus or Pig Destroyer.

    This is great! Believe it or not, I’d like to own more music like this. It’s great for doing work, reading or meditating. Very nice!
