The Symphony No. 2 (subtitled "True and Eternal Bliss") by Galina Ustvolskaya was composed in 1979 and published in 1982. It is based on the texts of the 11th-century German monk and musician Hermanus Contractus and scored for: groups of six flutes, oboes and trumpets; single trombone, tuba and piano; percussion and solo voice, repeating three times the words Gospodi, vechnost, istina (Lord, eternity, truth) between homophonic instrumental passages. The work lasts approximately 18 minutes.
