Angel vopiyashe 'The angel cried'
1887; published in 1906
author of text

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The setting of the Easter zadostoynik, Angel vopiyashe is an impressive work, a miniature drama constructed from minimal resources. It has a curious history in that it was written in 1887 for the inaugural concert of the Moscow Choral Society but subsequently lost. It reappeared in the library of a Moscow choirmaster and was published only in 1906, thirteen years after the composer’s death.
