Episcopal Parish of St John the Baptist: LYRA – Russian Sacred and Folk Songs

Lyra is an a cappella vocal group from St. Petersburg, Russia, renowned for its pure sound that can both fill a room and drop to a whisper through the most complex polyphony or simplest Russian folk tune. The group explores Russian choral music from ancient chants of the Orthodox Church to works of the 18th-20th centuries as well as folk songs. Program begins with Sacred Chants of the Russian Orthodox Church, concluding with Russian folk songs, followed by champagne reception with Russian delicacies. Lyra CDs available at concert.
