Video. Slava vo Vyshnikh Bogu (Glory to God in the Highest!). Rakhmaninov/Paul Hillier

Thank you Mariusz for giving me the inspiration to create this video. You wished to have a version of this work done by a mixed chorus, so, here it is! This lady bows before the gentleman who gave her such a good idea! The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir is directed by Paul Hillier, and the iconography is from the Khram Spasa na Krovi (Church of our Saviour on the Spilt Blood) in St Petersburg. This magnificent church was built on the very spot of the assasination of Tsar Aleksandr Nikolaevich in 1881.

Vechnaya pamyat, rab bozhii Aleksandr.
