      ANNOUNCEMENT

      The Final Revision (2001) of the book Russian Liturgical Choral Aesthetics: Its
      Past in Tradition and Present in Ruins is now available, with many changes and
      additions. It is an historical and critical study of Russian Church Singing,
      with a focus on performance practices, as documented by a large number of
      sources and quotations. It also begins to address the destruction of national
      identity as a direct outcome of communism, with its link to pre-Revolutionary
      SRs, reformists, renovationists, modernists and present-day renovationists, all
      part of the thread also known as ecumenism. The book now comes with 3 audio CDs
      with track numbers, which make it easier to follow the musical examples than had
      been previously possible with the cassette tapes.

      The announcement is made especially for the purpose of informing former
      students, who might be interested in the revised edition, as well as those who
      will be attending the Summer Music School in Jordanville. It would be most
      helpful for them to read the book prior to coming to class this July.

      The book is sold for the price of copying the book, the CDs and binding, which
      amount to about $30, plus shipping. For exact cost and all inquiries please
      contact:
