Alexander Levine's inspired setting of the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom is recognizably modern, though it is still solidly rooted in Orthodox Christian tradition and carries in its sublime moods and sonorities the spirituality and mysticism of the Eastern Church. Levine's composition follows canonical usage, with some changes from convention (some texts usually sung by the priest are given to the choir) the music is full of the textures and rhythmic flow of Russian church music, which Levine has clearly internalized.

Tenebrae return to the repertoire of Russian composer Alexander Levine. The Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom is Levine’s most significant large-scale religious work to date. The performance is spectacularly successful. Short paces the score superbly and his singers are with him at every turn. Release Date: 11 March 2013. Record Label: Signum Classics. Catalogue Number: SIGCD316. Location of Recording: St Augustine’s Church, Kilburn, London.
