The “Great Doxology,” a setting of the Orthodox “Gloria in excelsis Deo”from the All-Night Vigil, op. 44 (1913), shows Chesnokov at his most brilliant and colorful: trumpet-like fanfares alternate with more lyrical contrapuntal passages, culminating with a dramatic solo recitative on the words “Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy on us.” (This edition is an arrangement of Chesnokov’s original setting, which is scored for mixed chorus: cat. No. Cn266)
