Review quote

It is difficult to praise OUP's new anthology of unaccompanied Russian choral music too highly. Twenty-seven pieces by 17 composers fill up 190 pages - a compact and invaluable volume . . . Russian Sacred Music for Choirs is a tribute to Mann's sorely missed expertise in, and enthusiasm for, Russian choral music . . . The texture of the collection ranges from four-voice homophony all the way up to a dozen voice parts. But most of the music in this volume will sound effective when performed by a chamber choir of only modest dimensions and pretensions . . . The icing on this Torte is an invitingly informative preface, and biographies of all of the composers included in the anthology. * Jeremy Summerly, Choir & Organ, March 2014 *show more

About Noelle Mann

Noelle Mann was born in 1946 in south-west France and died in London in 2010. Having trained first as a concert pianist, Noelle moved to the UK and read music at Goldsmiths College (University of London), during which she began researching the znamenny chant of the Russian Orthodox Church. Noelle's interest in the Russian choral tradition led her in 1993 to establish the Kalina Choir, the first UK choir exclusively dedicated to performing Russian choral music. Through this and subsequent choral directing, Noelle developed her research and performance practice of this music. As a musicologist, Noelle's interests embraced both Russian choral music and the life and work of Serge Prokofiev. Noelle became the Founding Curator of the Prokofiev Archive in 1994 and established the academic Centre for Russian Music at Goldsmiths College in 1997. In 2001, Noelle founded and became Editor of Three Oranges, an academic journal dedicated to the study of the life and times of more
