This is the fifth volume of a book about the Moscow Synodal choir (Moscow Choral Academy since 1887). Throughout its history the Choir was successively under the authority of the Kiev, Vladimir, and Moscow metropolitans. The current volume includes articles, interviews, correspondence with Russian composers, materials and memoirs about the religious composer of pre-revolutionary Russia Aleksandr Kastal'skii (1856-1924). Though it is related to the history of the Choir, it goes far beyond this topic, and covers the musical, religious and social life of the 1890s-1924. Comments, supplements, biographical sketch about and list of publications by A. Kastal'skii. Name index. S. Zvereva (b. 1956) is one of the compilers of the series "Russkaia Dukhovnaia Muzyka v Dokumentakh i Materialakh". Previous volumes and standing order are available.
