TABLE OF MUSICAL CONTENTS
This collection is published in honor of the life and legacy of Archpriest Sergei Glagolev, and includes over 50 pages of liturgical music, never before seen photos, with greetings and congratulatory remarks addressed to Father Sergei.
“This collection of words, photographs, and music is testimony and homage to the inspiration that the life and work of Archpriest Sergei Glagolev have been to so many around the world,” the Protopresbyter Ivan Moody, ISOCM chairman, says in the introduction, adding, “He is a transmitter of spiritual joy, a facilitator of something that needs to be undertaken in all seriousness, with great humility and also a sense of amazed, joyous daring.
The ISOCM, began organizing an informal gathering of greetings and congratulatory remarks for Father Sergei’s ninetieth birthday in August 2018. The project quickly became an outpouring of reflections and best wishes, along with over 20 choral pieces submitted from former students, colleagues, and admirers of Father Sergei’s music. The pieces are the heart of this publication, with many written in honor of the festive occasion.
“The essence of this volume is a series of compositions collected by composers who know, have studied with, have learned from, or simply admire, Father Sergei,” Father Ivan notes, adding, “These composers come from all corners of the United States, certainly, but also from Bulgaria, Canada, Finland, France, Japan, Portugal, Serbia and the United Kingdom, because Father Sergei’s voice is far from provincial, far from national.”
