O Praise the Lord of Heaven! - William Billings
Fusion videos of 18th century American hymnography and Russian religious art. So, here we pair an anthem by Billings with 19th century Russian religious art. This is not iconography per se, but many of these works are very familiar to a Russian audience. God willing, they shall reach Americans as well.
The anthem is sung by His Majesty's Clerkes under the direction of Paul Hillier.
