“Gladsome Light,” one of the most ancient of Christian hymns still in use today, is sung at the vesperal portion of the Eastern Orthodox All-Night Vigil, following the procession with the incense. Although the composer doesn’t identify this composition as an arrangement of Kievan chant, the chant melody appears in somewhat embellished fashion throughout the piece.
This edition is an arrangement for male chorus based upon the original version for mixed voices.
