While Orthodoxy was the earliest form of Christianity to reach Finland, its music was initially drawn from the rich Slavic tradition, subsequently adapted into the Finnish language. This recording by Cappella Romana features original works composed in Finnish in the 20th century that draw upon the Finnish choral tradition, marrying a shining Northern clarity of sound with a sonic richness linked to the traditions of Russian choral singing. Extensive scholarly essay by guest director Ivan Moody and full texts are included in both English and Finnish.
