"My Soul Doth Magnify the LORD" - Sergei Tolstokulakov (Slavonic)
This is a contemporary setting of "My Soul Doth Magnify the Lord" (the Russian Orthodox version of the "Magnificat") by Sergei Tolstokulakov. It is sung by the Novokuznetsk Spiritual Seminary Choir under the direction of Angelina Tolstokulakova. This video uses the Christian art of the great Peredvizhniki artist Ilya Repin as the backdrop.
"More honourable than the Cherubim, and more glorious beyond compare than the Seraphim, Thou who without defilement gavest birth to God the Word, O True Birthgiver of God, Thee do we magnify!"
