Double SATB Chorus a cappella
Sacred traditional texts from the Eastern Orthodox All-Night Vigil in Church Slavonic
Duration: ten minutes
Difficulty rating (1-5): 5

This piece has not yet been premiered. Please contact me if you are interested in premiering this piece.
 

I. Blazhen Muzh (Blessed is the Man)

II. Svete Tihiy (O Gladsome Light)
III. Bogoroditse Devo (Rejoice, O Virgin)

This is one of my most complex choral pieces, the texts represent a great challenge as their history demands great respect, and the music itself is very challenging double chorus music full of polytonality, extreme ranges, and extensive divisi. I am hoping to add more sections of  the All-Night Vigil to this composition. The piece is dedicated to my older son Shannon, who was a professional boy soprano in his youth.

Complete perusal score available upon request.

(translation)
 
Blessed is the man, who walks not in the counsel of the wicked.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.
Alleluia ...
Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice in Him with trembling.
Alleluia...
Blessed are all who take refuge in Him.
Arise, 0 Lord! Save me, 0 my God!
Alleluia ...
Salvation is of the Lord; and Thy blessing is upon Thy people.
Alleluia ...
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
both now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, glory to Thee, 0 God!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, glory to Thee, 0 God!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, glory to Thee, 0 God!
