Boris Feoktistov is a composer and conductor of Russian Orthodox liturgical chants. He has written musical compositions for piano, vocalists, for orchestra and has scored films. He began his musical studies at a young age, learning the violin while in school. He later attended a school for music, but was drafted into the army and did not graduate. In the 1970s, he was blessed by Philaret (Vakhromeyev), becoming a precentor at Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius. In 1993, Feoktistov was invited to an exhibition to conduct a choir in dedication of the 75th anniversary of the murder of the Imperial family.[1] In 1995, American composer Bill Laswell remixed Feoktistov's Parastas, adding ambient music soundscapes, and released the tracks on Russian Chants «Parastas».[2]
