ARCTIC LIGHT: FINNISH ORTHODOX MUSIC

Directed by the Very Rev. Ivan Moody, composer, Orthodox priest, and professor of church music at the University of Eastern Finland, Joensuu.

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 clearly linked to the traditions of Russian choral singing.
