Nikolsky composed his setting of this psalm text—“The Lord is my light and my Savior. Whom shall I fear”—in 1922, when the Russian Civil War had been raging for 4 years and when the Communist government’s attacks upon Orthodox clergy and Christian believers were ramping up. These circumstances make this setting extremely poignant, and it is widely sung in Russia to this very day. Because many manuscript copies of this work are in circulation; it is important to note that the present edition has been verified against Nikolsky’s autograph score and thus represents the composer’s intent. A brilliant choral orchestrator, Nikolsky is one of the members of the “new Russian choral school” whose works have yet to garner well-deserved acclaim, even nearly a hundred years after their composition.
