Our western-based music conveys the text faithfully, too. It melds so well with the Russian music that most of the time you wouldn't even know it was lifted from western sources unless you were told.

I assume you use fairly Western-style Russian tones? Otherwise, all I can say is your audience is not very sensitive.
In love did God create the world; in love does he guide it ...; in love is he going wondrously to transform it. --Abba Isaac

Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity. --Climacus
