SATB choir (div)
Blazheni, yazhe izbral. Composed by Alexander Gretchaninoff (1864-1956). Choral octavo. With Language: Church Slavonic. Published by Musica Russica (MR.GR-043).

Item Number: MR.GR-043

This setting of the Communion Hymn for the Departed (sung at a Memorial Liturgy) is one of Gretchaninoff's most somber and introspective short sacred works. In it he finds inspiration and thematic material from a melodically rich Bulgarian chant, one of the few examples of his use of pre-existing chant.
