About the album

Since 2001, ECM has championed the art of Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov with recordings of his orchestral, chamber and vocal works – creations that stand as some of the most arresting and moving in contemporary music. This continues in Silvestrov’s 75th birthday year with Sacred Songs, the seventh release ECM has devoted wholly to the composer’s music; it collects sets of songs composed from 2006 to 2008: Songs for Vespers, Psalms and Prayers, Two Psalms of David, Two Spiritual Refrains, Two Spiritual Songs and Three Spiritual Songs. These pieces reflect Silvestrov’s late-blooming interest in composing for voices, which has led to the ECM albums Requiem for Larissa (released in 2004) and Sacred Works (2010). Like Sacred Works, the new Sacred Songs features the idiomatically attuned, even otherworldly performances of Ukraine’s Kiev Chamber Choir under the direction of co-founder Mykola Hobdych, with the recordings made in the resounding air of St. Michael’s Golden-Domed Monastery, an ancient building recently reconstructed, whose acoustic is almost a joint performer with the choir.
