The Powers of Heaven is the second recording Paul Hillier has made with the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, and it covers a sampling of Eastern Orthodox sacred literature dating from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Hillier has the taste and good sense not to juice up this material in any way; the delivery of everything on the disc is meticulously prepared, straightforward, and appropriately devotional in tone. The booklet contains brief, but excellent notes by Marika C. Kuzma that provide rare historical context for this generally mysterious music, and the program itself is concentrated in a specific period.

This is NOT chant (nor do I wish it to be), that's just what some marketing nitwits decided to call it upon re-release. The original name of the CD (upon initial release in 2003) was "The Powers of Heaven - Orthodox Music of the 17th and 18th Centuries. These marketing creeps apparently decided that, with this piece of disinformation - . calling it "chant" - they will sell more CDs. I know that some misinformed listeners confuse sacred choral music with chant - but PLEASE don't encourage their ignorance.

The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir (EPCC) is a professional choir based in Estonia. It was founded in 1981 by Tõnu Kaljuste, who was its conductor for twenty years. In 2001, Paul Hillier followed Kaljuste's tenure, becoming the EPCC's principal conductor and artistic director until September 2008, when Daniel Reuss took over the task. Since 2014 the choir's principal conductor has been Kaspars Putniņš
