Rachmaninov and Russian Folk Songs

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

A pair of Russian folk songs starts the hour, one sacred and one secular. First, a movement from the Rachmaninov Vespers by The St. Petersburg Chamber Choir, and then a Russian military folk song by the Cossack Circle Ensemble.
