About the choir
Riga Orthodox Chamber Choir BLAGOVEST from Latvia was founded in 1990 with an aim to popularize forgotten treasures of Russian sacred music, which makes the most part of the choir's repertoire.

Various secular compositions of outstanding Russian, Latvian, and Western composers are included in the choir's repertoire as well. Read more
