Songs from Old Russia


Serge Jaroff (1896-1985) founded his world-famous Don Cossack Choir in 1921 and they made their first concert appearances in 1923. The choir consisted of Don Cossacks living in exile, and appeared throughout the world performing repertoire comprising chiefly of Russian church and folk music. On the basis of this the choir became internationally renowned and a much-loved ambassador of Russian culture. In 1979 it gave its last performance in Paris, whilst continuing to make appearances under Jaroff's direction until 1981. This double CD includes the hits Kalinka, Evening Bells, I pray to the power of love, and The Monotonous Chiming of the Little Bell.
