Russian Video: The Little Church in the Woods!


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

It is well worth your time and attention.
