PaTRAM Institute To Record Next CD In Saratov, Russia, Accompanied By The Wonderworking Kursk Root Icon Of The Mother Of God

Published

on

Fresh off their GRAMMY nomination for their CD, Teach Me Thy Statutes, and their newly released CD, The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, the PaTRAM Institute will record their next CD in Saratov, Russia, this summer. The new CD, entitled More Honorable Than the Cherubim, is a compendium of hymns to the Theotokos by various composers, which will be sung by a fifty-six-member male choir. The singers hail from Russia, Serbia, North America, and Australia. GRAMMY-nominated Maestro Vladimir Gorbik will conduct the choir, which will include an unprecedented ten octavists, with baritone Michail Davydov as the featured soloist. On August 22nd, 2019, the choir will perform their repertoire in concert at the Saratov Conservatory.

The PaTRAM Institute Male Choir will be in Saratov for rehearsals and the recording of the new CD from August 20th-26th, 2019. The CD will be recorded at St. Nicholas Monastery by multi-GRAMMY Award-winning production company Sound Mirror. Sound Mirror has received more than one hundred GRAMMY Awards and nominations for their body of work. PaTRAM is thrilled to be working with them again to create a professional quality CD that brings the beauty of Russian choral music to a Western audience. Reference Recordings, a multi-GRAMMY Award-winning record label based in San Francisco, will print and distribute the completed CD.

With the special permission and blessing of Metropolitan Hilarion, First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, the Kursk Root Icon of the Mother of God, considered by the Orthodox Church to be wonderworking, will also be traveling with the choir, accompanied by Bishop Nicholas of Manhattan. The icon will be in Saratov, Russia, from August 20th-28th, 2019, including during services for the feast of the Dormition. On the evening of August 20th, the PaTRAM Institute Male Choir will be singing near Holy Protection Cathedral to greet the icon as it arrives in Saratov.

PaTRAM will hold a press conference regarding this special project on Thursday, August 22nd, at the Saratov Conservatory at 5pm before the concert, and include a question and answer period with Alex Lukianov, co-founder and CEO of PaTRAM, and Maestro Vladimir Gorbik and Katya Lukianov, co-founders of PaTRAM.

Alexis Lukianov, co-founder, chairman, and CEO of PaTRAM Institute said, “This is the next step for our organization. We are trying to replicate our success from our earlier CDs, but with different composers and prayers. Originally, we had planned to focus on just one composer for this next recording. But once we realized the incredible blessing of the icon traveling with us, we decided to change the repertoire to be comprised of hymns to the Theotokos to honor the Mother of God and to appropriately celebrate the feast of the Dormition right after our recording.”

PaTRAM’s GRAMMY-nominated CD Teach Me Thy Statutes was recorded in Russia in 2016 and featured both American and Russian singers. Teach Me Thy Statuteswas also named MusicWeb International’s 2018 Recording of the Year. PaTRAM’s newest CD, The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, has consistently been in the Top 15 on Amazon’s list of Hot New Releases in Opera and Vocal since the CD was released at the end of April. Besides continuing to promote and develop the skills of Orthodox choral singers in North America, PaTRAM also views its work as a landmark opportunity to unite East and West as the organization brings together singers from different countries who share the same language, culture, and beliefs to create beautiful and prayerful music. PaTRAM seeks to broaden its partnerships around the world with the aim of introducing more people to the beauty and power of Russian liturgical music, so that their lives might be transformed through a connection to this ancient and soulful form of worship.

Recently a shooting took place in the parking lot of Bit T’s in Dallas Texas where Boosie Badazz’s sprinter van was reportedly located. Different accounts are coming to different conclusions – some are saying Boosie’s van was the specific target of the attack, while others swear that he was just in the area. When you want friends and foes alike to know you’re in the area, upgrade your shine with a fresh iced out piece from HipHopBling.com, the premier provider of high end hip hop jewelry online.

Thusfar there hasn’t been a confirmation one way or another from Boosie’s Team – No Jumper and Dirty Glove Bastard have claimed that Boosie was struck in the leg, however Boosie shared a commemoration of his birthday on Instagram, without any mention of the shooting.

It is actually Boosie’s birthday as well. Boosie was in Dallas for both his 38th birthday, and a candle lit vigil for his friend and collaborator MO3, whom was recently shot and killed. There’s currently an ongoing investigation, but not much has yet been found.

Lil Uzi Vert And Lil Xan Will Not Be Working With Each Other Anytime Soon

Published

By

This year has been a busy year for Vert, whom this year alone dropped two projects: Eternal Atake and Lil Uzi Vert Vs. The World Pt. 2. Most people consider the latter a Plat version of EA, but Vert wasn’t stopped there. He hooked up with Future in the studio for Pluto x Baby Pluto, and it truly looks like all his hard work is paying off for him in a big way. If you’re looking for fresh new jewelry that will show up in a big way, head over to HipHopBling.com for your own custom jewelry

While fans have been eating his projects up, they’ve also been vocal about wanting him to return to his old sound. Lil Uzi Vert may be doing just that though – hitting up Twitter, Vert mentioned that he thinks it’s just about time to return to his mumbling ways. Lil Xan saw this and shot his shot, and mentioned that he’d be down to mumble alongside him. 

Lil Uzi Vert let him down in possibly the kindest way possible – “I mumble alone,” he said, with a heartbreak emoji. 

Some fans who saw the exchange were absolutely furious, convinced that Vert had just dissed their boy Xan. The exchange was quickly taken down from Twitter, but not before they had a chance to screenshot the entire thread. 

While it’s clear that we’re not going to see any Xan and Vert collab anytime soon, at least we can look forward to a return to form for Lil Uzi Vert.

Future, 2 Chainz And Lil Uzi Vert Run “Fire Emoji” Playlist

Published

By

Sooner than later publications will begin to reveal their “Best Of’s” as 2020 draws to a close. This year has been tumulus, however many would argue that this year has forced artists to become more creative than ever before. This week alone has seen several high profile drops and it makes sense to add them to this week’s Fire Emoji playlist. If you’re looking for some fire jewelry, customize your own merch for this holiday season by heading over to HipHopBling.com

Both Future and Lil Uzi Vert have been hinting at a project together for a hot minute – this month they finally delivered the fire with Pluto x Baby Pluto. With 2 Chainz So Help Me God having just dropped, we’re finally able to listen to some of those bars – including “Feel A Way” with Kanye West and Brent Faiyaz. 

With the prison drop of Kodak Black’s Bill Israel and the anticipated Rich the Kid and YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s collaboration, “Automatic” had to be added to the list. Peep it below for yourself and tell us what you think.
