Sergei Rachmaninoff composed a setting of the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom in 1910 which is the Eastern Orthodox counterpart to the Catholic Ordo missae. In this work for a cappella choir Rachmaninoff attempted to observe all of the strict requirements of the church, yet nonetheless, he also succeeded in creating a masterpiece in his own unique style. In this new edition the text is underlaid in Church Slavonic in Latin transcription, as well as in a singable German translation. It also contains an English pronunciation table.
