Павел Чесноков Дух Твой благий

Composer(s) Pavel Chesnokov; In Church Slavonic; For Mixed chorus ; Style/Genre Sacred; Occasion(s) Pentecost; Publisher Musica Russica;

“Let Thy Good Spirit” is one in a cycle of ten Communion Hymns, opus 25, composed by Chesnokov during his tenure as precentor at the Church of the Holy Trinity “at the Mud” in Moscow. The cycle culminates a number of opuses in which Chesnokov wrote richly sonorous harmonized settings of traditional chant melodies; the present work, however, does not use a pre-existing chant melody. The text is the Communion Hymn for the feast of Pentecost, prescribed to be sung during the Liturgy served on that day.

One of Chesnokov's most striking chant arrangements, this setting of the "Polyeleios" from the Orthodox All-Night Vigil service is based on a melody of traditional znamenny chant, which is heard alternately in stark unison and enhanced by rich 6- and 8-part polyphony.

Dimitry Bortniansky (1751-1825) was the most prominent choral composer and conductor of his epoch, leading the Imperial Court Chapel of St. Petersburg to unprecedented heights of excellence as Europe's preeminent choir. The "Cherubic Hymn No. 7," his most popular setting of that text, has been a staple of Russian Orthodox church repertoire from the early nineteenth century to the present day.

All Creation Rejoices by Pavel Chesnokov

Opus Op.15, No. 11;
Павел Чесноков O Тебе радуется

Composer(s) Pavel Chesnokov; In Transliteration, Church Slavonic; For Mixed chorus ; Style/Genre Sacred, Liturgical Choral; Occasion(s) Orthodox Liturgy; Publisher Musica Russica;

“All of Creation Rejoices” is a setting of the special Hymn to the Theotokos (the Mother of God) that is sung at the Liturgy of St. Basil the Great, served ten times during the year. Chesnokov’s setting may be described as a “paraphrase” of Pyotr Turchaninov’s setting of the same text, which was the one most widely used in Russia during the nineteenth century. (Turchaninov’s chant arrangement is No. 66 in the anthology One Thousand Years of Russian Church Music, V. Morosan., ed., Musica Russica, 1991.) The connection is clearly established in the first two measures through the use of the same “Greek” chant melody used by Turchaninov. Chesnokov then departs from the cantus firmus substantially, reintroducing it briefly in mm. 15-16, 27, and 41-42, just enough to maintain the connection with the prototype. The most signiflcant departure from the homophonic “chant harmonization” style occurs in mm. 31-40, where imitative writing and text repetition paint the text “more spacious than the heavens”. Chesnokov included this work as a supplement to Opus 15, his first setting of the complete Divine Liturgy, which he compiled by taking individual hymn settings from earlier opuses and adding all the essential liturgical responses. Though clearly intended for use during the liturgy, it compares favorably with his compositions of a concert-like nature.

Павел Чесноков Спасение соделал

Composer(s) Pavel Chesnokov; In Transliteration, Church Slavonic; For Mixed chorus ; Style/Genre Sacred, Liturgical Choral, Sacred Concerto; Occasion(s) Orthodox Liturgy; Publisher Musica Russica;

This is the most popular sacred work by Pavel Chesnokov (1877-1944) outside of Russia. This edition restores Chesnokov's original voicing and markings, which were sometimes missing from the numerous English-language editions that appeared in the 1920s and 1930s. The text consists of a single psalm verse, followed by "Alleluia," which makes singing this piece in the original language eminently accessible to choirs of all levels.
