More than 400 years of sacred music will be brought to life at Rosyth Methodist Church this month as the acclaimed Voskresenije Choir arrives in Fife. Musical director Jurij Maruk will lead the ensemble in an evening of traditional Russian sacred and folk music at the Queensferry Road church. Voskresenije, which means ‘resurrection’, was founded by Maruk in 1993 and is now one of the most respected ensembles on the sacred music circuit, winning widespread critical acclaim across Europe for its inimitable performances.

In the first half of their programme the gifted vocalists, who all studied at the St Petersburg Music Conservatoire, will bring us some of the most inspirational and moving works in the Russian sacred music repertoire, spanning the 16th Century to the 20th Century, and including extracts from Rachmaninov’s 1916 Vespers.

The second half will provide a complete contrast, with a selection of spectacular Russian folk songs, allowing us to enjoy the talents of individual performers, displaying, for example, the extraordinary range of basso-profundo notes that we associate with the world of Russian choral music.
