A spectacular performance in Irkutsk, Siberia, in honor of the victory of St. Dimitri Donskoi over the Mongol Tartars at Kulikovo Field in 1380. Consists primarily of incredible, energetic singing by a male quintet and sextet, in period costumes. It is mostly a capella, but some selections have magnificent instrumental accompaniment. Absolutely delightful, enthralling and fully professional performance! Nothing like this has ever been seen in America before.
