Cherubic Hymn “Aghia Sophia”

for SAB choir a cappella

This beautiful text is sung during the Byzantine Divine Liturgy in conjunction with the Great Entrance procession with the Gifts ( the bread and wine for Holy Communion). Choral settings are also used as motets or anthems by churches of the Western tradition as well as in choral concerts. Hagia Sophia, meaning holy wisdom, is the name of the great patriarchal cathedral in Constantinople (modern Istanbul, Turkey), turned into a mosque by the Ottoman Turks, and is now a museum.

    The clear, rinsed sound of Women’s voices is hardly more thrilling than in the recital of rounds. And when the rounds offer plenty of movement among the parts, as do most in this collection, the effect can be delightful. These twelve rounds, set largely to medieval texts, are of varying difficulty and may require rehearsal. […]

In 1895 Oscar Wilde was imprisoned for two years for being a practicing homosexual, a crime in England at that time. Housman’s poem, while seemingly tongue-in-cheek, was written in protest of Wilde’s incarceration and a British court system […]
