This sequence of beautiful choral music interspersed with serene, reflective instrumental music played by Ensemble 360, celebrates the long tradition of Russian church music and the popularity of choral singing in the Baltic States. The sonority of Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov is well-known, but church music continued to survive even in the Soviet era, both in Russia itself and in countries such as Estonia and Latvia.

Singers: be part of this special occasion!

Experienced singers are warmly invited to perform in this moving programme. Music in the Round’s Artistic Director and eminent singer Angus Smith (the Orlando Consort) will lead a workshop in advance and an ‘on the day’ rehearsal from 3.30pm.


Cost includes the workshop, rehearsal, the concert and the sheet music.
