St. John of San Francisco Russian Men's Chorale
The historic tradition of Russian Orthodox sacred music spans many centuries and many musical styles. The one unifying factor among the many periods of Russian church music is the preeminence of the human voice. According to Orthodox tradition, the human voice is the only instrument worthy of the church services, since it was created by God, not by man. Within this rich a capella tradition, the Russian people have a special love for the male choir. The St. John of San Francisco Mens Chorale is a resident choir of the Holy Virgin Cathedral in San Francisco. The choirs repertoire of sacred chant spans the musical tradition of the Orthodox Church from the 13th to the 20th centuries. Traditional melodies, such as Znamenny, Kievan, Greek, Bulgarian, and Georgian chants are represented, as well as monastery chants of the Trinity-Sergius Lavra (monastery), the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, the Valaam monastery, and the Optina Hermitage. Selections from famous Russian composers, including Kastalsky, Trubachev, Kedrov, and Gardner will also be performed as part of this unique concert.
