The young basso profondo Mikhail Kruglov has posted a new video of himself singing Chesnokov's peice "Save Thy People." Pavel Chesnokov (24 October 1877 – 14 March 1944) was a Russian composer who had a particularly keen ear for the basso profondo, and has composed many choral pieces that showcase this particular range. Chesnokov was a prolific composer, having composed over four-hundred works by the time he was thirty; however, he met a tragic end under the Soviet regime. When the cathedral where he was choirmaster was torn down, and Chesnokov ceased composing altogether.
Kruglov sings this piece in D minor, which is a considerably lower key than that usually sung. That makes the lowest note in the piece a D2, for anyone wondering.
