Radio 3 Rebirth of the Russian Orthodox Church

4th August 2017

Forwarded from Michael Bourdeaux:

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, which also inaugurated a massive persecution against religion. At the beginning of the century the BBC commissioned me to make a series of  programmes celebrating the rebirth of the Russian Orthodox Church, one of which marked the 300th anniversary of the founding of St Petersburg in 2003. Radio 3 broadcast this in the “Choral Evensong” slot on Wednesday, 2 August, at 3.30 pm, to be repeated on the Feast of the Transfiguration (Sunday 6 August at 3 pm).

Do listen if you can – or “catch up” – and please let anyone know who might be interested.

Best wishes,

Michael
