The English translation by accomplished translator Julian Henry Lowenfeld will be released in the U.S. on October 1. Harold Liech, Russian area specialist of the Library of Congress, has called the book “amazing”, and the translation “excellent”.
Archimandrite Tikhon is the abbot of one of Russia’s most well-known religious institutions, the Moscow Sretensky Monastery. This monastery, located in the heart of Russia’s capital city, is a leader in religious and cultural education. It has one of the largest religious publishing houses in the country, and runs Russia’s most visited religious website, Pravoslavie.ru. Father Tikhon is the author of numerous books and articles, and creator of a series of documentary films. He is active in numerous social and cultural programs, and has often appeared on Russian national television.
Another more melodious feature of Father Tikhon’s Monastery is its world-famous choir, which will be touring the U.S. for a second time this October. Father Tikhon will be accompanying the choir as it performs in nine U. S. cities: Washington, DC, Chicago, New York, Boston, Miami, Dallas, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The full schedule of the US tour is available at www.camimusic.com/choir.
Father Tikhon will also be serving in a number of Orthodox Churches during the course of the choir tour, which is dedicated to the five-year anniversary of the reunification of the Moscow Patriarchate with the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad. Updates will be posted regarding the schedule of services in U. S. churches where the Sretensky Choir will sing.
