Russian Orthodox Choir: Monday YouTube Fix

Andrew Hitz

All that any of us instrumentalists are ever trying to do is sound like singers.  Phrasing, intonation, blend, interpretation, dynamic contrast.  Everything is modeled by singers.

This clip of a male Russian Orthodox choir made me melt.  So much soul.  The name of the group is not listed but the baritone soloist is Chernegov-Nomerov Egor.  What I wouldn't give to be able to sing like that! They are singing Chesnokov's "Gabriel Appeared".

The video is not great quality but the audio is good and the performance is unreal.
