Christian Message From Moscow (Russia:) Pavel Chesnokov, Russian composer 2006-06-10

Pavel Chesnokov, a prominent Orthodox composer and the onetime leader of many church choirs, was born in 1877 to the family of hereditary Russian precentors who lived near Moscow. Graduating from the Moscow school of church music in 1895, he then apprenticed with the prominent composer Sergei Taneyev who was then director of the Moscow Conservatory.

Pavel Chesnokov's compositions are a performer's dream, they take out the very best there is in the singer.

You are also welcome at the Mansfield & United Lutheran podcasts to hear this week's sermon from an ELCA Lutheran perspective.

You link for "Read more about Pavel Chesnokov here" doesn't have a place to go apparently, and I would like to read more because I'm doing one of his pieces in choir and conducting this year.

There was one piece of code missing, which disabled the link. It's fixed now. Would be grateful if you tell others about our blog and the listings... my part in this is 100% volunteer, so appreciate if you can help spread the word about the blog. (clinton)
