Musical Interlude

(For politics, please scroll down)

Close your eyes, clear your mind, and listen to Selection 6 of Tchaikovsky's Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom (1878):

We who mystically represent the Cherubim,
and who sing to the Life-Giving Trinity the thrice-holy hymn,
let us now lay aside all earthly cares
that we may receive the King of all,
escorted invisibly by the angelic orders.


  1. That is so beautiful and so wonderfully well performed for once in my life words fail me.

    Possibly Tchaikovsky's very finest work

    Thank you so much for making it available. I feel almost ashamed to admit I'd never heard of it before, nor even knew of its existence.

  2. A perfect choice... first time I have heard it.
