Conducting this for a recital and was curious if anyone had an IPA chart for the transliteration of the Church Slavonic.

Dear Thanks – one of my favorite pieces. Your question brought a smile. There is no better source than Musica Russica and Vlad Morison to answer your question. He was even gracious to speak to me personally on a question I had regarding the piece. Download this link for help.
Musica Russica sells a language CD at a reasonable cost. It is wonderful, even for the most amateur singer on your roster. I hope you aren’t posting the question with intent on singing this masterpiece in English. In my opinion, all is lost if not sung in the original language. I used the translation in program notes.
Best wishes on your performance!

I remind you that Musica database has often an audio file with the pronunciation linked to the description of a piece. Pronunciations are always done by natives.
It is the case for Bogoroditse Devo:
Go to the membership resources of the ACDA website and there click on the logo of MUSICA to access with full privileges. If not a member of ACDA, go directly to http://www.musicanet.org and log in.
Search for the title Bogoroditse, choose one of the publications selected and the pronunciation button is there…
