Russian Video: The Little Church in the Woods!

Hello,

This is another a Capella Spiritual song in the style of the Siberian Old Believers. The minor modality makes one think of Sacred Harp/Shaped Note singing from the American South. I find this style of singing haunting and extraordinarily beautiful. The effect of the song will hold you in a trance and as you watch the photos appear you see that Russia has a beauty that rivals anywhere in the world.

It is matched with photos by Igor Shpilenok, one of Russia’s most honored and respected nature photographers. Visit his website at http://www.shpilenok.com.

It is well worth your time and attention.
