This documentary is dedicated to the Moscow Patriarch Choir of Christ the Saviour Cathedral and its director Ilya Tolkachev, rightly considered one of the best choirs of the Orthodox world. After over 130 years in existence, it continues the glorious traditions of church singing in Russia. The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow is the seat of Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Church, which was destroyed by the Stalin regime and rebuilt in the 1990s. It is itself a symbol for the tradition and the reinvigoration of the Russian Church.
