|Comments||This wonderful Russian choral piece has been set for orchestra by Richard G. Smith. The music could be performed by school groups but is musically substantial enough to be used by professional groups as well. |
The technical challenges are not great but the musical and expressive abilites of both the conductor and the musicians are what make this piece either average or extremely profound.
