Wonderful, but...

"I have purchased this CD after encountering some of Korniev's other work with the St Petersburg Chamber Choir, and the quality of the singing (as well as the music) does not disappoint. The choir has a beautiful (rather misty) focus, soaring sopranos and basses to give any subwoofer a serious workout.The anthology is interestingly chosen, containing better and lesser-known composers.My only gripe is with the packaging: no texts or translations are supplied, not even English titles for the tracks. One therefore has not the faintest idea what the choir is singing (or what they're singing about). For that I subtract one star. Shame on you Philips!"

"This CD is very good, and is one of the best Russian CD's I could find in America. The singers are very clear, and give you a feeling of the Russian Christmas season, with a wide variety of tunes. Growing up in Russia, this CD provides me with the comfort of the Christmas season I was brought up with...and I recommend this CD everyone. One downfall however is that the tracks and songs are sung is Russian...this was not a major point for me, since Russian is my first langauge, but for anyone who cannot understand the language....this entire CD is NOT in English, and if that bothers you, I recommend that you find a CD that has translations for you to follow, since this cd does not provide them, and you will have no idea what the songs are about."
