A Russian hymn: Tschesnekoff’s “Salvation is Created”

December 21, 2016

I thought I would post this performance of Tschesnekoff’s “Salvation is Created” by Pro Coro Canada again as to me it does have an Advent flavor.  It is quite an intense piece, and beautiful.

Here are the lyrics:

Russian:

Spaséñiye, sodélal yesí
Posredé ziemlí,
Bózhe. Allilúiya.

English translation:

Salvation is created,
in midst of the earth,
O God, O our God. Alleluia.

    Wonderful! I do love Russian sacred music. It is as though they fully understand the weight of glory.

      I like the way you put that, and I do think there is that sense in Russian sacred music that we don’t always find elsewhere. Not sure why that is, but it is glorious!
