Christmas special 2020 (Offer €25)

  1. CD Christmas in Russia (regular price €20)

Christmass in Russia

Russian Orthodoxy is what makes Russia so distinctly different. As one of the most important Christian holidays, Christmas is therefore not to be missed in Russia. Anyone who loves Russia, the Russian Orthodox Church or Russian church music will certainly appreciate this CD. The songs of largely unknown composers together form the Christmas vespers, a joyful service full of song and light processions. The Christmas vespers are celebrated on Christmas Eve, which falls on January 6. The Don KosakenChor Russland, led by Marcel Nicolajevich Verhoeff and those priests and blankets of the St. Nicholas Church in Moscow bring you this special compilation of Russian Christmas music.
