The album consists of choral songs of the best Bulgarian composers performed by Sofia Chamber Choir 'Vasil Arnaudov'

Sacred music, in recent years in particular, has taken a more and more considerable place in the repertoire of Bulgarian choirs. This refers also to one of the most prominent Bulgaria choirs - Vassil Arnaudov Sofia Chamber Choir, conducted by Theodora Pavlovitch. Founded in 1966, the choir has gained wide popularity and prestige both at home and abroad. Known as Lyubomir Pipkov Sofia Chamber Choir from 1976 until 1991, it was later renamed after its late conductor, Prof. Vassil Arnaudov (1933-1991). Over the years the Choir has been keeping a high vocal standard together with a rich and intriguing repertoire. The latter includes a capella forms and choral cycles by composers of various epochs and styles with particular attention to works by Bulgarian composers, some of them especially composed for the choir. Theodora Pavlovitch graduated from the Sofia State Academy of Music majoring in choral conducting and sound-engineering. A student and assistant of Prof. Arnaudov, she took over as conductor the Sofia Chamber Choir in 1991, following the overall artistic tradition established by her teacher. Today she is one of the most outstanding choir specialists. At present she is lecturer at the State Academy of Music in Sofia and associate professor in choral conducting at the Academy and at Sofia University . She has also been frequently invited as an adjudicator at international choral competitions, committee-member of the International Festival for Orthodox Music in Sofia, Board member of IFCM, Vice-President of EUROPA CANTAT EFYC and President of its Music Commission. The present CD "Orthodox Chants" features works that cover a wide period of seven centuries (ranging between the 14th-20th c). The release (whose booklet also includes the respective texts of the chants) is like an anthology of the various styles of East-Orthodox church music.
