Very soon after the publication of his early chant arrangements in the late 1890s, Kastalsky was hailed by colleagues and critics as the inaugurator of a new style in Russian sacred choral music. This setting of “A Mercy of Peace”—the Eucharistic Canon from the Orthodox Divine Liturgy, incorporating the Sanctus and Benedictus—shows off Kastalsky’s masterful handling of the chant, as he clothes the ancient znamenny melody in a new polyphonic garment, alternately surrounding it with modal harmonies, treating it imitatively, and developing it motivically. Paying homage to the original anonymous composer(s) of the chant, he preserves the lengthy melismatic passages (fitas) that were used to highlight and beautify specific words in the text and embellishes them further by his own inventive and imaginative counterpoint.
(Recorded by Conspirare on their CD, The Sacred Spirit of Russia, release date: Fall 2013)
