Magnificent Slavonic arrangement of Trisagion Hymn

Here is a beautiful Russian chant “Svyatïy Bozhe” (Holy God) by Russian composer Georgy Sviridov (1915-98). This was performed by the Credo Chamber Choir of Kiev, Ukraine. Whilst it was originally released as a part of “Georgy Sviridov: Hymns and Prayers”, it can also be found on the more easily attainable compilation “Sacred Treasures V: From a Russian Cathedral”.

The image of the Lord Jesus Christ is widely believed to have been painted by Ivan Nikolaevich Kramskoi (Ива́н Никола́евич Крамско́й, lived 1837-87). Some, however, believe that El Greco (Doménikos Theotokópoulos, lived 1541-1614) painted it.
