Benedict Sheehan's landmark setting of the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom in English grows out of the tradition of the great Russian liturgy settings by Rachmaninoff, Gretchaninoff, and Tchaikovsky. Hailed by Metropolitan Tikhon of the Orthodox Church in America as "a new milestone for Orthodoxy in America," it is also reminiscent of medieval Eastern chant and minimalism, American folk singing, and the high tradition of Western church music. Sheehan's sweeping and virtuosic a cappella Liturgy represents a fresh and vibrant voice for choral music today. The Saint Tikhon Choir was founded in 2015 by Benedict Sheehan, the group's artistic director, and Abbot Sergius of St. Tikhon's Monastery. It is the first professional vocal ensemble connected with an Orthodox monastery in America, founded with a mission to foster and build up the American Orthodox choral tradition at the highest artistic level.
