Yevhen Stankovych's concert "Liturgy" will be performed on December 18th in St. Sophia Cathedral, by the Kyiv Choir, conducted by Mykola Hobdych. "Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom" is the last of Ye.Stankovich's choral works. I started writing "Liturgy," says the composer, trying to avoid the conservative aesthetics of church singing. In my opinion, everything should develop like human life. The Lord created people for self-improvement, development, reaching the highest point... I focused on the text of John Chrysostom. But I did it, rather, as a secular piece, for a concert performance with these words. Both the emotional state and the construction itself are more designed for a secular, concert piece, in which each repetition is determined purely by musical development and expressiveness of the presentation."
