SHCHETYNSKY, A.: Know Yourself / Light to Lighten / Requiem (New Sacred Music from Ukraine) (Cantus Chamber Choir, Gloria Chamber Choir)

The Ukrainian composer Alexander Shchetynsky writes music of haunting luminosity and sublime spirituality. Within a framework of rhythmic and structural flexibility, each of the three works heard on this recording is a synthesis of a multitude of musical styles, as well as of secular and sacred traditions, conveyed in a uniquely personal voice. These include old and new Orthodox Church chant, Ukrainian song melodies, Gregorian Chant, early polyphony, Baroque, 19th-century operatic melodies and innovative 20th-century compositional techniques. The composer writes: “I aim at overcoming eclecticism and finding a new unity in the combination of those musical elements that historically never existed next to each other.”
