About Release:

In 1991, in celebration of their 20th anniversary, Hoosli released this cassette, their fourth recording. Composed of 12 songs. Choir consisted of 36 members. A world famous painting by the noted artist Repin depicted a group of boisterous Kozaks writing a threatening letter to the Sultan; they had served the Sultan well and now wished to return to their homeland. In no uncertain terms they explained to the Sultan that they in no way feared either him or his hordes and homeward they would go – and if he didn’t like it, he knew what he could do!

Limited copies of this of this album may be available directly from Hoosli. Please contact us for details.
