Tchaikovsky Hymn of the Cherubim USSR Ministry Of Culture Chamber Choir

In 1984 I went with my father to Russia. It had been an ambition of ours for so very long. Early one morning we crossed the road in front of our hotel to the Alexander Nevsky Lavra (monastery) in Saint-Petersburg for the Holy Liturgy. The cathedral was packed with people attending Mass before going on to work. So packed, that I and father were separated. I looked around to find him and saw him, about ten yards away, the tears pouring down his face, so moved was he by the singing, and by the resolute, strong faith of the dense crowd around him. When you hear music such as this, the veil is parted between Earth and Paradise, and you realise how small you are, and how much you are loved!
I wonder what makes people to click thumb down when they hear such a purity in music.
Children are afraid of the dark and adults are afraid of the light.

I wounder how the western civilization could abandon such beautiful art/words/spiritualism for the inner core of the body which is the connection between flesh and consciousness. They chose pop-music over this. Me, born as a Muslim, but have the greatest respect for this beautiful culture and religion and happpy to witness it.

Back in the early 1990.s I was working in Kyiv. My work partner and I, both atheists, made it a habit to go to church - How this music is performed is magical - the congregation stand in the core of the basilica - the choir sings unseen from behind screens - it is as if the angels are singing especially as the sopranos come in over the top and the basses rumble at the bottom. The sound washes though the people and the congregation vibrate in tune
You are soul
I'm 23 seconds in. I've listened to Tchaikovsky all my life but never heard this. This is sublime.
wow I am humbled to be a Christian. God bless all my brothers and sisters from your Syriac Orthodox (Assyrian) brother
Robert Early
I've been a professional musician for 65 years. This Russian choir is truly truly wonderful singing a truly heavenly piece of music.
As a Westerner, as an American...this strikes me to the core, only an introspective people with a deep sense of humility and raw experience of life could produce such stark and beautiful music...may America and Russia find peace for we share the essence of this music between our peoples...

May Jesus Christ bless all the souls of those whom died under Bolshevik Communism. God bless the world. May the power of the Lord Jesus Christ outshine the darkness.

Deeply moving.....I feel gently transported into God's presence. A window into heaven! We need this while we are still here on earth.
Shivam Mishra
Close your eyes and you will feel like God is standing beside you to take you to heaven....its very peaceful..

... this music is truly Divine, ... nevertheless one cannot help noticing here that a disproportionate number of comments, instead on focusing on the sublime substance of the matter, do testify to the old Chinese saying by Confucius: “When a wise man points at the moon the imbecile examines the finger.”

Mr Putin needs not his armies,,, he can win over the world with the wonderfull Russian singing and culture.

Welcome, I am a Muslim and I love the songs of the Christian orthodoxy because it has a high spirituality
Yuri Ivanovich
Some have referred to this as being sad. I find it very intense and uplifting, myself. Close your eyes and you can see the Angles singing.
I am a coptic orthodox (Christian from Egypt), Just want to thank those who shared this precious christian heritage. Russia is a great country, and Russians are wonderful people and strong believers

This beautiful spiritual creation from Russia is one of the reasons that the anti-christ and his forces are trying to misrepresent and destroy Russia. American Christians and all other Christians around the world must open their eyes and hearts and see what the evil people in their governments, and their backers are doing, and we must all pray and resist the anti-christ together. Amen.
An Albanian Catholic here, living in the West. Russian literature and music, have influenced me massively.

God bless Russia and our Russian brothers in Christ Jesus! For they shall inherit the Kingdom of Heaven! Jesus return is soon! We await with amazement and adoration! Amen!
Gina Kalla
I keep coming back to listen to this. Russians have suffered. They overcame, then they lost again. But they kept on giving, even their own lives, to make the world better. They have huge hearts and serious souls and with their music they cradle me, wrap me into rich tapestry and calm and re-assure me that all will be good in the end. The power of goodness made music.

Rich, deep, And holy. Music. This is beyond language. It’s a sense of belonging
Paul Hilko
While visiting Russia, I heard some of the most angelic, and spiritual music of my entire life. As I was walking past a church in Russia, I watched people as they walked by a church, actually stop, face the church and bless themselves. Orthodoxy Christianity is alive and well in Russia.
OMG is this a great composition and performance

Consider the text as you listen: We, who mystically represent the Cherubim, And chant the thrice-holy hymn to the Life-giving Trinity, Let us set aside the cares of life That we may receive the King of all, Who comes invisibly escorted by the Divine Hosts."

preco mam pocit ze slovani maju dusu a srdce a anglosasi maju drzost a krutost v dusi? My pravoslavni sme zazili tisice rokov utlaku.Od roku 1646 nas mali zozrat uniati /greckokatolici, podriadeni papezovi /, v podstate cele vychodne slovensko muselo nutene lebo zemepani drugethovci prikazali prestupit na uniu grecko katolicku, pod hrozbou straty majetkov, smrtipreto sme pravoslavni aki sme.Uniu zaviedli abi rusini neboli jednotny narod,aby necheli vlastnu zem.CO myslite ,aku vieru doniesli na Velku Moravu Cyril a Metod? Pravoslavnu.To su tie paradoxy, odtial ich hnali latinici, rimskokatolici a dnes ja na slvenksu sviatok Cyrila a Metoda.Ved to je na smiech aka je historia pokrutena.Latinici chceli latinsky obrad, nie byzantsky /podotykam ze greckokatolici nemaju sancu si privlastnit nejaky byzantsky obrad, kedze vznikli od roku 1646 . ..v grecku su PRAVOSlAVNI- greckokatolik je reformovany pravoslavny, nieco ako evenjelik / Z velkej moravy ich vyhnali do Srbska odkial dosli sem do kyjevskej rusi. Prosim ziadne diskusie, len preto vznikli uniati.,aby sa rusini hadali na viere od roku 1646 ! Pravoslavie katolicke je od pociatku,od dob isusa christa, preto davam cerveu uniatskym kecom, pozdravujem vladyku Chautura aj monachov v Krasnom Brode / povodny klastor je ale urcite PRAVOSLAVNY, zo 14 storocia kde nebolo chyrovat o uniatoch, starsi ako grecko katolicka cirkev :( mier a lasku a hospod s vami bratia uniati

Tchaikovsky, the soul of the Russian people. Love his music.
Amber Grooms
I'll tell you what, I've been listening to choral music since a very young age, and this recording specifically has moved me to tears, which is rare when I'm listening to choral music (I absolutely love it, don't get me wrong, but nothing has ever struck me so powerfully.). I have listened to a handful of Tchaikovsky's works, and each and every moment I feel something heavy pull and tug on my heart in the most wonderful (possible) way. He definitely had a gift of connecting the human race to something greater than itself--which, if one believes, is said to be God Himself. I will always be in awe of his ability to align frequencies and rhythms into works unimaginable by anyone else; in my opinion, no one will ever live up to his God-given talent.

All art forms in the Orthodox Church tradition be they choral music or icon paintings are spiritually inspired- something rarely experienced in the West.

Oh Tchaikovsky... i don't know what was inside your mind, but i think i know what was in your heart, a solemn love, this piece is pure light, this is the proof your inner ecstasy, your honest joy... But people, yes, he was amazing as a human being, but hear what was inside of him... hear that light... feel it... the message, not only the messenger... God... Light... Energy...
