Processional on a Russian Chant
by Robert Parker
© 2012 GIA.
A great prelude piece for a festive occasion, Processional on a Russian Chant is based on “Hvalite Imia Ghospondne.” The incipit of the chant is Psalm 135:1, “Praise the name of the Lord; praise the Lord, O you servants.” As is typical of Russian music, this has a low bass drone through much of the piece. Adding cymbals and bass drum enriches this festive hymn of praise, which beautifully illustrates the spirit of the psalm text. A fortissimo beginning makes way to a softer middle section that steadily swells back to a triumphal fff ending.
