Sunday Music & Stravinsky & Sacred Choruses

Igor Stravinsky, Three Russian Sacred Choruses.

Our Father (1926), Ave Maria (1934), Credo (1932). The Gregg Smith singers, directed by Robert Craft. Courtesy of Youtuber Stravinsky91.

Well, except maybe for the first one, I wouldn’t say Stravinsky’s sacred selections stir up the spiritual juices, exactly. (There are parts of Firebird that do the job better for me!) Still, it’s interesting to find out that Stravinsky did any sacred music at all.
