      The Patriarch Tikhon Choir � Their Sound Hath Gone Forth
      July 16, 2013
      By Benedict Sheehan

      For Immediate Release

      The Patriarch Tikhon Choir, a unique choral ensemble made up of
      professional singers from Russia and North America, under the direction
      of renowned Moscow conductor Vladimir Gorbik, will perform their
      premiere concert series of Orthodox sacred choral works entitled �Their
      Sound Hath Gone Forth,� Monday, September 16, 2013, at St. Malachy�s �
      The Actor�s Chapel, in New York City, at 7:30pm; Tuesday, September 17,
      2013, at the First Baptist Church of Pittsburgh, at 7:00pm; and
      Wednesday, September 18, 2013, at St. Peter�s on Capitol Hill,
      Washington, D.C., at 8:00pm. Tickets can be purchased in advance at
      www.patriarchtikhonchoir.com <http://www.patriarchtikhonchoir.com> and
      at the door.

      The program includes works from the Orthodox All-Night Vigil and Divine
      Liturgy ranging from austere, centuries-old Znamenny Chants to sumptuous
      polyphonic works by such Russian masters as Dmitry Bortniansky,
      Alexander Kastalsky, Pavel Chesnokov, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Sergius
      Trubachev. Also featured on the program are compositions and
      arrangements by contemporary American Orthodox composers Nicholas
      Reeves, Kurt Sander, Benedict Sheehan, and Nazo Zakkak; several will be
      concert premieres. In keeping with the choir�s multi-cultural approach,
      the program will be sung in both Church Slavonic and in English.

      The recently formed Patriarch Tikhon Choir is a 35-voice mixed choir
      that brings together, for the first time, professional vocalists and
      choral musicians from the United States, Canada, and Russia. The
      singers, who, in addition to performing on the concert stage, routinely
      sing Orthodox liturgical services, impart an essential spiritual element
      to their interpretation of Orthodox sacred music.
