Naxos this month released something I was not aware of:

ALEXANDER KASTALSKY (1856-1926): Memory Eternal to the Fallen Heroes, Doors of Thy Mercy, From my youth, Blessed are they (All First Recordings).

Label: Naxos

Reference: 8.573889

Description: The 40-minute Memory Eternal is the a cappella version, to be sung in Russian Orthodox churches, of a choral-orchestral Requiem from 1917 in memory of Russian World War I dead. Following the basic structure of the Orthodox Panihida, or memorial service it, and the short sacred pieces that end the program, reveal Kastalsky’s masterful use of choral sonority and color, his weaving of complex polyphonic textures, and his graceful use of ancient chant melodies. Church Slavonic-English texts. The Clarion Choir; Steven Fox.
