As the countdown to Christmas nears its end, many music fans will choose Russian music for the occasion. Rachmaninoff and other composers have created a legacy which is enjoyed to this day.

From the article:
The program opens with the fanfare from J.S. Bach's "Christmas Oratorio" followed by "Schlafe, Mein Liebster" (Sleep, My Beloved) from the oratorio sung by Shishkova. Several traditional English and German numbers precede the music from Russia. which begins with Rachmaninoff's "Ave Maria" from his "Vespers." That is followed by two movements from the "Christmas Oratorio" by Archbishop Hilarion Alfeyev of the Eastern Orthodox Church.


He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
