Kastalsky’s masterful setting of the Great Doxology (incorporating the “Gloria in excelsis” and additional texts in Orthodox usage) shows the composer’s intense sensitivity to choral color, textual inflection, and fine shades of meaning within the text. While based on motives drawn from znamenny chant, the composer is not bound so much by the cantus firmus as by the expressive declamation of the text, with its numerous contrasts and nuances, spanning prayerful emotions ranging from praise, worship, and exaltation to contrition, repentance, and supplication. Requiring a mastery of the lengthy text (facilitated by a Musica Russica’s Audio Diction Guide), this piece offers choirs and audiences a wealth of satisfaction by virtue of its multi-dimensional depth and beauty.
(Recorded by Conspirare on their CD, The Sacred Spirit of Russia, release date: Fall 2013)
