“Like Steinberg’s ‘Passion Week’ and the other neglected music it’s resurrected, Cappella Romana continues its ascent.” —Wall Street Journal
On the heels of their chart-topping GOOD FRIDAY IN JERUSALEM, Cappella Romana releases its 21st CD, the WORLD PREMIERE RECORDING of STEINBERG’S PASSION WEEK, following their sold-out world premiere live performances of the work in 2014.
Steinberg’s PASSION WEEK is the last major sacred work composed in Russia after the 1917 Revolution. Alexander Lingas leads Cappella Romana’s intrepid singers in Steinberg’s profoundly moving work that extends the musical language of Rachmaninoff ’s All-Night Vigil (“Vespers”). Chants arranged by Rimsky-Korsakov, Steinberg’s teacher and father-in-law, reveal earlier layers of the tradition. Extensive 2,800-word scholarly essay by artistic director Dr. Alexander Lingas (City University London, University of Oxford) included, with full texts in Church Slavonic and translations in English. Cappella Romana is produced since 2004 by GRAMMY™ Award-winner Steve Barnett.
