Season of Repentance
Lenten Homilies of Saint John of Kronstadt
by John Ilyich Sergiyev
To be released in time for Great Lent. This is the first new material by this great pre-revolutionary Russian pastor and miracle-worker to appear in English since My Life in Christ in 1897. The sermons are an exhortation to repentance; that is, a reorientation of our life away from everything that is superfluous and a turning toward God as our Creator and Lord. They bring us ultimately to Holy Friday and to the foot of the Cross of Christ. Thus, the saint concludes:
"Let us love Truth, let us love mercy, that we may be shown mercy."

Worship at Holy Trinity Monastery
by Holy Trinity Monastery and Seminary Choir
Тема этого диска – освящение или искупление времени посредством богослужения, сквозь призму богатой музыкальной традиции Свято-Троицкого монастыря в г. Джорданвилль (шт. Нью Йорк. Песнопения взяты из всех богослужебный кругов церковного года – дневного круга: от полунощницы до повечерия, недельного круга - Октоих, годичного круга - Минея, и особого круга, т.н. движущегося, Пасхального - Триодь Постная и Цветная. Все песнопения раскрывают широту и богатство музыкальной традиции Джорданвилля в нынешнем его исполнении.
This recording explores the sanctification of time through the particular lens of the rich musical tradition of the Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, NY. The hymns are taken from all the cycles of church services – the daily cycle from the midnight office to compline, the weekly cycle of the Octoechos, the yearly cycle of the Menaion, and the moveable cycle of the Triodion and Pentecostarion, which revolves around the feast of feasts – Pascha. These hymns serve to demonstrate the range and breadth of the musical tradition in Jordanville as it is sung today.

Оптина Пустынь и ее время
В наше время не сложно найти книги о монашестве, умном делании, старчестве. К сожалению, книг, написанных опытными носителями древней традиции Русского Православного монашеского делания достаточно мало. В этом и состоит преимущество книги И.М. Концевича «Оптина пустынь и ее время». Сам автор духовно окормлялся у Оптинских старцев, и традиции древнего старчества являлись главным интересом его исследовательской деятельности и личной духовной жизни. Этот труд, приготовленный к печати вдовой Ивана Михайловича, составлен на основе уникальных материалов, писем самих Оптинских старцев и воспоминаний современников.

Правда об убийстве Царской семьи
По словам самого автора, работа не является попыткой реабилитировать Имп. Николая II как человека и государственного деятеля. Тем не менее, в целях восстановления истины, автор документально опровергает домыслы и злостные выдумки советских авторов и западных историков, которые до нашего времени не скупятся на чернила и бумагу, чтобы постоянно очернять до предела замученную в чекистском застенке Царскую Семью. В этой книге, читатель найдет наиболее полное и объективное исследование убийства Царской Семьи. В ней систематизированы все документальные факты, касающиеся этого трагического эпизода русской истории.
