Nïne silï nebesnïya 'Now ye heavenly powers'

composer
author of text

 
Count Alexander Sheremetiev (1859–1931) was a Russian nobleman and philanthropist who, following the lead of his father, founded his own orchestra and choir in order to further the cause of music in Russia. His vast inherited wealth gave him access to the finest musicians around and enabled him to mount concerts at prices low enough for the general public to afford. His few surviving compositions include a setting of Now ye heavenly powers from the Liturgy of the Pre-sanctified Gifts. Calling the Orthodox faithful to communion, this quietly powerful piece bids them to partake in everlasting life.
