Chorus named G. Veryovka. Verbovaja doshchechka. /digi-pack/. (Willow Plank)
As I have an acquaintance who works at the airport, I can confidently say: when flying away from Ukraine, people search for discs by exactly this Ukrainian collective, in fact, more frequently than any other ones. Whatever you might say, the National Choir named after G.Veryovka is a real, bright, original legend. Living. By the way, in 2008, the choir will celebrate the 65th anniversary from the day of its foundation – and life whirls to this day: numerous tours, researches, successes, labor, realization... Creativity. It is necessary to indicate here that participants of the choir collect not only folk songs, dances, instrumental music. This is a real laboratory, in which they also study ceremonies and customs from all over Ukraine. Here, in fact, the choir, orchestra, dancing group, training studio, the ensemble "Tsviten" co-operate – the unordinary union of bright people, isn't it. By the way, it is from here that the way of one of the best performers of Ukrainian folk songs – Nina Matvienko – started. She was its soloist for many years... Thus, they have reasons to be justly proud of – and a lot of them. And if we take into consideration that till recently it was almost impossible to find records by the choir, because new ones did not appear, and old ones did not have second releases... I think that the only thing left is to congratulate everyone – us, you, them – of that what has long been expected for has finally happened. The silence is finally – broken!

Vydubychi Church Chorus. Golden Melodies. Ukrainian folk songs.


...these songs at this disc sound somehow strictly, greatly, spiritually in that sense which is meant in connection with the church singing. Natural melodiousness of both Ukrainian language and, as they say, people’s soul is quite evident for everybody who listens to Ukrainian song...

More than 50 years ago my father brought me a record ( elpee) from Rusland of this choir. I was a child and loved THE voices and the songs. After my parents moved and recently died, i found this " lost" vinyl in an old suitcase. I googled and found THE same choir and songs as a cd at UMKA. I was - and am - so glad, THE music is still as wonderfull as 50 years ago. Thank you so much UMKA for your kind service...
