The Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom

Posted on 20th February 2013

Tenebrae will give the UK premiere of Alexander Levine’s “The Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom”  in the Priory Church of St Bartholomew the Great, London on March 7. The performance will also mark the work’s release on Signum Classics and its publication by Edition Peters.

The Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom is Levine’s most significant large-scale religious work to date. Inspired by the humility and humanity of the murdered Russian priest (and friend of Levine) Fr. Alexander Men and composed over a three-month period of spiritual immersion, research and contemplation (similar to that described by his great forebears Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov), the work traces a continuous spiritual growth towards the central point of the Liturgy – the Holy Communion.
