'Til Morn Eternal Breaks' New York concert draws interest.

"In twenty-first-century America, the Orthodox Church has yet to produce organically its own choral ensembles capable of doing justice to new works. Recognizing this fact, Benedict Sheehan, with the blessing and guidance of Archimandrite Sergius (Bowyer), the abbot of St. Tikhon’s Monastery and himself an educated musician, assembled the Chamber Choir of St. TIkhon’s Monastery, the first professional vocal ensemble connected with an Orthodox monastery in America. The Chamber Choir’s lofty mission is “to explore, promote, and build up the tradition of Orthodox sacred music in America, and to bring people of today’s world into contact with the living tradition of ancient Christianity through vibrant and inspiring choral singing.” Benedict Sheehan’s role, not only as the composer of the music on the present CD, but also as the driving force behind the formation of the Chamber Choir of St. Tikhon’s Monastery and its conductor on this disc, shows just what a multi-faceted and formidably creative individual he is."
