Mixed Voice Sacred Choral at its Best

If you love the unique, captivating sound of Russian sacred choral music, you will enjoy this recording. My greater preference is the Moscow Stretensky Monastery Choir (male), but this DVD with mixed voices comes in as a close second. I do not speak or understand Russian. The sound transcends the words.
