Kiev Chamber Choir / Mykola Hobdych

Since 2001, ECM has enthusiastically championed the art of Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov with recordings of his orchestral, chamber and vocal works - creations that stand as some of the most arresting and moving in contemporary music. This continues in Silvestrov’s 75th birthday year with Sacred Songs, the seventh album ECM has devoted wholly to the composer’s music; it collects sets of songs, refrains, psalms and prayers written between 2006 and 2008 that reflect the composer’s late-blooming interest in writing for voices.

Previous choral releases of Silvestrov on the label were the Requiem for Larissa in memory of the composer’s wife (4721122) and the unaccompanied Sacred Works (4763316). Like the latter album, Sacred Songs features the utterly attuned, even otherworldly performances of Ukraine’s Kiev Chamber Choir under the direction of co-founder Mykola Hobdych, with the recordings made in the resounding air of St. Michael’s Golden-Domed Monastery, an ancient building recently reconstructed, the acoustic of which is almost a joint performer with the choir.

The BBC description of Sacred Works: “A ravishing collection of a cappella choral works. It is the sheer beauty of sound that catches the ear (...) luminous and lyrical.”
