Looking for Choral Arrangement
« on: April 29, 2013, 09:46:44 AM »
Our choir director is looking for an English arrangement of Artem Vedel's "Paschal Canon." We have sung this in Slavonic forever and we would like an English version. Thanks for any leads.

Ha!  Choral Arrangement!  I had read "Floral Arrangement"!   :angel:

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Is there an English translation available?  It is such a difficult piece of music.
