  • September 30, 2006 A Classic from Russian Choral Anthems

    A classic of worship in the Russian liturgical tradition; harmonically rich 8-part choral setting, with full dynamic range. Forty voices singing this well in a cathedral can seem to echo heavenly choirs singing praises to the victorious Lamb. English text: Holy radiant Light! Thou Holy Radiance of the Father...

    , Glorious and Mighty! Thou Only Begotten Son of God, Eternal, Holy Jesu! Come we now to the hour of setting sun; the lights of evening 'round us shine. - O Holy Trinity, Holy Ones, We sing Thy praise evermore; We sing Thy praise, Holy Trinity!With undefiled lips evermore Thy Glory [is] to be praised; Worthy art Thou, worthy to be praised evermore! Holy Son of God, Source of every life; Son of God, Thou radiant Light - All the world doth praise Thee evermore; praise Thee, Thou Son of God! Holy radiant Light: Praise we now, and evermore.
