Who composed this version of the Cherubic hymn?

I find this to be extremely beautiful, does anyone know the composer? All I know is that it appears to be sung by a Belorussian vocal ensemble.
Let us who mystically represent the cherubim and sing the thrice-holy hymn unto the life-giving Trinity now lay aside all earthly care. Amen. That we may receive the King of All escorted invisibly by angelic hosts. Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.

Simply breathtaking!

I regret that I do not know the work, but will endeavor to identify it.

Thank you for sharing via your post!

We use this version at my parish, and I love it more than anything. It takes me to the Kingdom coming.

Thank you for posting this! It's my favourite melody for Cherubic hymn, fortunately sometimes it's used by Polish parishes. I've never heard done it in so beautiful way in English.

We use it almost every week.

So is this an English version of what I posted earlier? The melody sounds somewhat similar.

Not even close.

I didn't think so, but my ear can be a bit bad sometimes, which is bad considering I'm a musician by main hobby.  :P

Can anyone identify the composer or perhaps know if a score is readily available (with text in any language)?

BTW - I do not think these arrangements are the same, but it could be my ear ...

Yeah, I don't think they're the same arrangement. The adaptions between the Slavonic and English texts may have thrown the music off but some of the melody sounded similar at points, though it might have just been my imagination.
