    Choral Music by Alexander Kastalsky

    Ok, here some choral sheet music I haven't seen anywhere else:

    http://www.seminaria.ru/raritet/kastalsky.htm

    Kastalsky inspired Rachmaninoff and many others...

    Just click on the bluish title lines and you'll see print-ready music.............
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Just found this thread CD. It looks to be a real treasure trove of great Choral Music. I am unable to read the russian but I found this example of Kastalsky's music.

    One of the great Liturgical composers of Russia resided there and worked tirelessly with music. Deacon Sergey Trubachev was and is an inspiration to all who wish to learn Russian Liturgical and Choral Music.

    Hi CD

    There is a series of 6 videos on You tube titles "Holy Russia celebrates The Festival Of Christmas" which seem to have a number of choral groups including Sergiev Posad.

    The first will lead you to the others. To me the music and the images are spectacular. Have a Happy New Year.

    Dear GB,

    Thank you for your excellent sleuthing - I am soon back in Moscow and looking forward to celebrating Christmas yet again on 07 Jan 2012 according to the Julian Calendar. My wife said that Christmas didn't arrive in the State Church of Sweden aka The Democratic Peoples Church which is run by the political parties and is thereby reduced to being a Mutual Interest Fellowship Club. It is so sad........
