When your good friend is singing

Trusting eyes

Of all the countries and regions in the world, the Ukraine is probably the richest in folklore, folk songs and music.  Many of the still-popular songs have been handed down from generation to generation by word of mouth and now are being passed on to future generations through the miracle of electronic recording.  Even though the Ukraine, as a nation, no longer exists, songs and dances are still being composed and so the cultural background of the Ukraine continues to flourish wherever Ukrainians live.

John Gotch is of Polish and Ukrainian descent and is thoroughly versed in Ukrainian music.  He has compiled this album of songs and dances of the Ukraine, some of them old and some new, and throughout them all, he has used the modern approach to orchestrations and instrumentation while retaining the old world charm essential to this type of music.
The brilliance of his arrangements is enhanced by the singing of Oksana Bluy, Luba Horsky and Vera Iwashako, a charming trio of girls all with extensive training at the Conservatory.
