The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood (whose mosaics are pictured on the right) is unusual in St. Petersburg in that it harkens back to medieval models, inspired by a movement to recover Russia’s ancient spiritual and artistic culture. Completed in 1907, the church was closed after the 1917 Revolution, not to reopen again until 1997.
Likewise the Passion Week by St. Petersburg composer Maximilian Steinberg was written with medieval models in mind, based entirely upon traditional Znamenny melodies. Like the Church of the Spilled Blood, this music too was completely hidden from view, never performed anywhere until now by Cappella Romana.
No where else can you also hear music by an 18th-century Patriarch, radiant Finnish Orthodox choral works, and Robert Kyr’s masterpiece, A Time for Life.
Come discover for yourself programs that will reveal new insights and understanding to culture, history, and spirituality.
