Boomkat Product Review:
Recorded in 1995, this disc collects world premiere recordings of ‘Litany’, ‘Psalom’ and ‘Trisagion’. Litany derives its text from the 24 prayers of St. John Chrysostum (the man responsible for writing the liturgy upon which Russian Orthodoxy is based) and there’s an appropriately devotional tone to the piece regardless of its manifold dynamic twists and turns. Apparently, Part had been familiar with the prayers for over twenty years, always intending to find his own musical resolution to them. It’s evident that the composer has pored over this endeavour at length; the piece carries the full weight of his formidable ability. The shortest of the three pieces, ‘Psalom’, is up next, an altogether gentler affair, retaining a light-as-air, floating quality over the course of its seven-minutes. Finally, ‘Trisagion’ sees a heightening in drama, with the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra playing the piece’s inherent grandeur for all it’s worth. Excellent stuff.
