Russian is a language I've always been meaning to learn. I only know a few words, but my Russian acquaintances tell me that my accent is nearly flawless. Related question for the musicians on the list. The "Vespers" series by Rachmaninoff -- what language is it written in? I've heard two answers: either Russian, or Old Church Slavonic. Another question: how different *are* the two languages? Could OCS be accurately described as "King James Russian", so to speak? Or is there more difference between them? :Chris
