PaTRAM Institute is delighted to present Blessed Art Thou among Women, a new recording of Orthodox choral music. Comprised of the works of many great Russian composers, all celebrating the theme of Russian Orthodox hymns dedicated to the Holy Theotokos, Blessed Art Thou among Women is performed by the Grammy award nominated PaTRAM Institute Singers™, a professional group of Russian and American male and female vocalists, joined by soloists Glenn Miller (basso profundo), Fotina Naumenko (soprano), Protodeacon Leonid Roschko, and two vocal quartets. This very special album is dedicated to the memory of Protoprebyter Valery Lukianov and was recorded in the St. Alexander Nevsky Diocesan Cathedral, which was engineered and built by Fr. Valery. This magnificent structure is considered to be one of America’s architectural gems and is adorned with frescoes of stunning beauty and a rich and worshipful acoustic. The release was recorded and mastered by multi-Grammy winner and nominee, SoundMirror, under the superb leadership of Grammy nominated conductor Maestro Peter Jermihov and distributed by multi-Grammy recording company, Reference Recordings. PaTRAM Institute co-founders Alexis and Katherine Lukianov served as Executive Producers and singers.

UPDATE 2/27: Glory to God, the monastery finally had its power restored last night after an outage of nearly two weeks following the severe ice storm of Feb 15th. However, phones and internet service are still down and the divine services are therefore unable to be live-streamed.
We are working to fulfill orders placed via our online store as quickly as we are able, however our stock has been heavily depleted since production was severely debilitated during the weeks we had only generator power. We appreciate everyone's patience as we are doing our best to run our business during these circumstances.
We are still working to repair all the damage done by the ice storm. This has been greatly aided by the overwhelming outpouring of support from people across the country and even across the world, for which we are extraordinarily grateful. May God richly reward all the hundreds of people who have stepped forward to help us in our time of need!
Above all, we are grateful for everyone's prayers. Please continue to pray for us, and be assured of our unworthy prayers for you!
