Egorii

Egorii ‘Egoriy the Brave’ – a spiritual poem about Egoriy (in Russian folk tradition the name of Saint Georgiy Pobedonosets (‘the one who bears victory’), who suffered terribly). The treacherous Tsar Kudriyanishche tortures Egoriy, drowns him, cuts him up with a saw, buries him alive. But Egoriy is invincible and, having overcome all the tortures, returns to his motherland. http://www.toccataclassics.com/sleevenotes.php?ID=26
