Lord, Have Mercy (Ghospodi pomiluy) by Grigory Lvovsky

Grigory Lvovsky Transliteration Church Slavonic Mixed chorus Four voices Sacred Musica Russica
Choral Score $1.95; Link to Full Score;
Opus Op. 34; Duration: 2:00;
Григорий Львовский Господи помилуй

Composer(s) Grigory Lvovsky; In Transliteration, Church Slavonic; For Mixed chorus ; Style/Genre Sacred; Publisher Musica Russica;

At the Orthodox feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, the bishop solemnly lowers and raises the Cross, blessing the four corners of the world, as the words "Ghospodi pomiluy" (Lord, have mercy) are sung 75 times. Grigory Lvovsky (1830-1894) was a prominent choral conductor in two of St. Petersburg's largest cathedrals. He was a student of Western Renaissance polyphony and a pioneer in the area of harmonizing traditional church chants for choir. His best-known work, a setting of "Ghospodi, pomiluy" (made popular by such groups as the Don Cossack Choir) is uncharacteristic in that it makes no use of any chant melodies but effectively uses harmonic progressions and dynamics to accompany the lowering and subsequent raising (exaltation) of the Cross. (Also available in an arrangements for TTBB and SAB choir.)

Opus 19, #III-3;
Николай Римский-Корсаков Заплетися плетень

Composer(s) Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov; In Russian; For Mixed chorus ; Style/Genre Folk; Publisher Musica Russica;

SATB.
As one of the “Mighty Five” group of Russian nationalist composers, Rimsky-Korsakov was an avid student and collector of Russian folk songs. “The Wicket Fence” is a springtime village ritual dance (horovod), also known as an “ornamental line-dance” (ornamental’nïy horovod). In this dance, the line of dancers, following the somewhat non-sensical text of the song, weaves through itself, winding into a tight circle and then unwinding back into a line. Besides being an effective multi-cultural program closer for a choir of any level, this piece, like Rimsky-Korsakov’s “With a Wreath I Stroll,” makes a great addition to the literature for the young and developing chorus.

Сергей Танеев Афанасий Фет Серенада

Composer(s) Sergei Taneyev; Author(s) Of Lyrics Afanasy Fet; In Transliteration, Russian; For Mixed chorus ; Style/Genre Classical; Publisher Musica Russica;

Sergei Taneyev (1856–1915) was a great Russian master of counterpoint and a great musical poet of Romantic sentiment. In this early miniature, written when he was only 21 years old, he already demonstrates his mastery of the composer’s craft, fashioning a gentle, but evocative lullaby in which a mother lovingly hushes her infant to sleep through beautiful images of nature. Simple and effective, this piece is eminently accessible to choirs of all levels. (Interestingly, though secular, it was included in Volume III of the Hearts of Space CD anthology Sacred Treasures.)
