Rimsky-Korsakov Cherubic Hymn № 6 (in Slavonic)

In addition to his symphonic, operatic and piano work, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov also composed and arranged a fair bit of church music. His primary contribution to this genre is his collection of hymns appointed to be sung during clergy communion for all the days of the year. Most of these were based directly on chant motifs from the synodal chant-books. He also free-composed several cherubic hymns, one of which is presented here in its original language.
