The Orthodox children''s choir (the first such choir in a century), will enchant you with its wonderful combination of simplicity, beauty, clarity and at the same time, occasional unusual melody. Spine-tingling.

The Saint Elijah Church, situated in Podol district of Kyiv, is the first Russian Orthodox church ever built. According to legend, it was built by the Prince Askold and Dir long before the baptizing of Kyiv Rus. The Saint chronicler Nestor writes about this event in his Fable of Ancient Times.

In 988 The Great equel to Apostle Prince Vladimir began baptizing the people of Kyiv Rus near this church on the banks of the Dnieper River.

And now this church, though small in size is under jurisdiction of the Metropolitan of Kyiv and the whole Ukraine Vladimir is a favourite place for praying for the Kyivites. Archiepriest Vitaly Kosovskiy is the dean of the church since 1991.

On the 19th of December 1996 the childrens choir began to sing for the glory of God.

The children regularly take part in Sunday and festive liturgies and has become an integral part of ther life. The choir also has consert activities. During a short time of its existence it won the All-Ukranian (1997, the town of Rivne) and International (1998, the town of Eupatoria) festivals.

In this album you can hear both little-known old spiritual songs of the 16-17th centuries and traditional and authors spirituel hymns of liturgies of the 18th beginning of the 20th centuries.

Special attention should be paid to old Ukranian cantical part of the album where warm feelings of Ukranian people to God are particularly expressed. The choir has become the first Orthodox childrens choir of Kyiv after almost a one hundred years interval.
