“Of Thy Mystical Supper” is a hymn from the Liturgy of Great and Holy Thursday in the Orthodox Church, when the institution of the Eucharist at the Mystical Supper is recalled; as such, it can be sung at any celebration of the Eucharist. Chesnokov’s setting, written when he was teaching choir at several finishing schools for young women, uses simple harmonic language and homophony to convey these profound words.
This work may also be sung by men’s chorus, as the audio sample--the only version available--demonstrates.
