"The Gorbechev Award-winning Pokrovsky ensemble has crafted a album of intense a capella performances. Most tracks are a complex layering of voices, sometimes all male, sometimes all female, sometimes everyone together, and in between are short, breathy (kaliuki) flute pieces.The songs have an ancient texture to them, and it's easy to close your eyes and imagine yourself in a village in old Russia while listening to these well-used and confident voices.The liner notes are good and convey the meaning of each song, but not the exact lyrics. The disc is short, but the intensity is such that 30 minutes packs quite a punch."
