Liturgy of St John Chrysostom, Op 41

First line:
Izhe heruvim´, tayno obrazuyushche 'Let us who mystically represent the Cherubim'
composer
1878

 
The sacred choral legacies of Tchaikovsky and Grechaninov exhibit a number of interesting interconnections. Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840–1893) was the first Russian composer in the late nineteenth century to write a stylistically unified, cyclical setting of the Liturgy of St John Chrysostom, the central eucharistic service of the Orthodox Church. His Liturgy, Op 41 elicited a good deal of controversy in Church circles—some critics likened it to a ‘sacred opera’ that used the text of the Liturgy as its libretto, while the Director of the Imperial Chapel, Bakhmetev, even attempted to ban publication and dissemination of the work. Nevertheless, Tchaikovsky’s lead was subsequently followed by many Russian composers.
