ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SINCE the fall of Communism, the Church - and the entire world - has come to a more complete knowledge of the crimes against humanity committed in the Russian Empire and Soviet Union by those dedicated to the destruction of Tsarist rule, the Orthodox and other Christian Churches, and religion in general, for the cause of atheist "revolution." An estimated 45 million people or more were slain out of a programmed hatred and paranoia. Terror, betrayal, distrust, isolation, self-preservation, hopelessness and faithlessness were at the core of the new, God-less social (dis)order created by the Bolsheviks. We venerate those Christians who refused to compromise their faith in Jesus Christ and who ultimately suffered with their Lord - hundreds of thousands of names, some known, though most known only to God, as Passion-bearers, New Martyrs, and Saints.

Metropolitan TRYPHON (Boris Petrovich Turkestanov, 1861-1934) was one of the venerable hierarchs and spiritual pillars of the Orthodoxy whose words and prayers supported Christians during these terrible and violent attacks and persecutions. In 1920-30s, his word was a word of the law for all the faithful maintaining survival among chaos and spiritual insanity of the country. For his remarkable gift of word and sermon, Mitropolitan Trifon was often called the Moscow Chrysostom. In 1929 he wrote “The Akathist of Thanksgiving” which has become his spiritual legacy. The words of the hymn “Glory to God for All Things” give to the Church and to the world light from great darkness, reminding us that even in the midst of frightful suffering true Christian conviction and courage are unconquerable. The hand-written text of the Akathist has remained in the Russian underground until 1970’s when it was first published abroad. In first publications, the text was mistakenly attributed to a New Russian Martyr-priest Gregory Petroff , in whose papers it was found after his death in Gulag. Later, when it became possible to publish the Akathist in Russia, the name of the Metropolitan Tryphon was revealed as its true author. Akathist starts with the forewords of St. John Chrysostom: “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). We are indeed thankful for this Akathist; our hearts are lifted by it. We offer these prayers to the glory of God and in honor of those "men, women and children, flowers of the spiritual meadow of Russia, who blossomed forth wondrously in time of grievous persecution" (from the Troparion to the New Martyrs of Russia).
