Russian composers of sacred music are known for writing richly harmonized chantbased works much more than for employing fugal or other imitative contrapuntal techniques. In his sacred concerto It Is a Good Thing Constantine Shvedoff (18861954) does both. Between the richly scored homophony of the beginning and ending, he constructs one of the rare fugues in all of Russian sacred choral literature, employing a theme that finds its roots in the ancient znamenny chant of the Russian church. A remarkable blending of East and West!
