Rated for the music, not for the overall DVD
(3 out of 5 stars)
"First off, let me just say that the music on this DVD is absolutely wonderful. Russian Orthodox liturgical music is entirely a cappella, and is sublimely beautiful. That said, the video portion of this DVD outright (...). It looks like it was made off a bad VHS dubbed copy; the picture jumps, lines occasionally go across the screen, and actually the visuals of the singing are pretty cheesy. The choir lipsynchs pretty well though. When I put this one one, I just turn the TV off and listen to it, because the visual part is just so bad. I just hope someday someone actually shoots a DVD of a real orthodox service, because I have never seen anything so spiritually moving!"
Could listen to this forever !

"Let us get this out of the way -- so the DVD is not so great to watch - NOT that bad either.Now for the important message --the chants are wonderfully performed. You do not want to miss this music. If you don't enjoy viewing (which you may) just listen to it. I keep it on in the background in my home office as much as possible. I find it makes for a much better attitude when faced with deadlines and work overload. Now that I've heard the St. Petersburg Choir, I will definitely look for more of their music."
Orthodoxy the best

"It is to my knowledge and this DVD has proven me no wrong that orthodoxy chants are the best of all known Christian Chants . A must buy for any chant lover"
