We Have No Other Help

Ne imami iniya pomoshchi

By Pavel Grigorievich Chesnokov

SATB choir (div)
Ne imami iniya pomoshchi. Composed by Pavel Grigorievich Chesnokov (1877-1944). Choral octavo. With Language: Church Slavonic. Published by Musica Russica (MR.CN-179).

Item Number: MR.CN-179

It is for good reason that Chesnokov's "Salvation is created" and "Let Thy Good Spirit," both from his opus 25, are perennial favorites with choirs. They are harmonically expressive, richly scored, and employ colorful contrasts between the male and treble groups of voices. "We Have No Other Help" is cut from the same choral cloth as the other two works, but it is practically unknown, both in Russia and elsewhere, and would have to remained so if it were not for our friend and colleague Ken Fulton from LSU, who commissioned an edition of it and proceeded to perform it as an All-State piece in at least half a dozen southern states. Imagine a Russian choral piece that's better known in Texas than in Moscow!

    This is a BEAUTIFUL song, and when performed well, it is stunning. I'm not a director, so my intermediate/advanced difficulty rating is based on how difficult it was for us as high school students to learn it and sing it well.
