Envisioning the Divine by means of visual artistic media, such as religious icons and stained glass windows, has long been an integral part of religious experience. In this concert the Seraphim Singers demonstrate a fusion of the aural and visual contemplative imagination in a concert of sacred choral works by Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, Gretchaninoff, Sviridov, Penderecki, and others.
