Vydubychi Church Chorus. Roman Hurko. Vechirnia. (Vespers)
You will find concrete and detailed information about the church choir "Vydubychi", as well as the personality and creativity of the composer Roman Hurko, in the booklet. It is worth knowing about life of our heroes – they really deserve this. Moreover, there you also have the texts that sound on the disk – nice, as usually it is not the practice for such music. That is why – with calm conscience I refuse to retell that you what you will hear here. It is all the same quite an ungrateful thing to do – to describe spiritual pieces with words. For they are directed at showing a person a way out of the verbal field, showing him/her out of his/her own personality – enabling him/her to dissolve in the blessed world. Exactly like this – I think that spiritual pieces do not take you to one concrete place but, vice versa, take you out of concrete things. One of obligatory conditions of spirituality as such is freedom. But – as acceptance, as gladness, as responsibility. And love. "Vespers" by Roman Hurko performed by the church choir "Vydubychi” – are you not surprised? - is a spiritual work. Both from historical, and from the aesthetic point of view. Consequently, you only need to be attentive. And – not a word more.

I grew up with this kind of music, and have been looking for it for ten years. What a pleasure. It is even more beautiful than I imagined. A colleague who walked past my office remarked how peaceful it sounded. The quality is excellent. Well worth buying.
