I am about to destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the nations.”
Haggai 2:22

Lord of hosts, Almighty Lord
Of men and angels come,
Sweep the earth with fire and sword,
To make thy kingdom room,
Every other throne o’erthrow,
That thine only may remain,
Reign thy thousand years below,
And then forever reign.

Charles Wesley, Short Hymns on Select Passages of the Holy Scriptures (1762)

sound  :: St. Johns Passion, “Das Wort”, Sofia Gubaidulina (2001)

[Russian Orthodox composer Gubaidulina intertwines texts from John’s Gospel and Revelation with complex liturgical music with its bells, prominent solo bass and richly textured choruses. For those who want more. And more.]
