THE AKATHIST HYMN (CD)

Executant: Eikona #: 12153

English Language

The Akathist Hymn is a Service of the Orthodox Church that invites the faithful to rejoice in the unique and sublime role the Virgin Mary played in the salvation of mankind. The Divine Incarnation is at the heart of this glorious telling in the form of hymns and prose, for it in the Virgin`s own womb that God became man. In extolling the Blessed Virgin, the Church is fulfilling the Scriptures of her own prophesy which states that "henceforth all generations shall call me blessed" (Lk. 1:48), and in the words of the inspired Elizabeth, "blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb." (Lk. 1:42).

CHRIST IS RISEN! THE ANCIENT HYMNS OF PASCHA (CD)

Executant: the Monks of Holy Cross Monastery #: 12159

This recording by the monks of Holy Cross Monastery is dedicated to the Feast of Feasts-the bright and glorious Resurrection of our Lord God and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

The choir has used as a primary musical basis, the official Synodal chant books of the Russian Orthodox Church. These books, the only ones ever blessed for liturgical use by the Holy Synod of the Russian Church, represent the most ancient and venerable forms of Russian Church music. In adapting these sanctified melodies for English text, the monastic choir strives to preserve the reverent and ascetical spirit of the original hymns, while at the same time rendering the English versions easily intelligible.

WHAT EARTHLY JOY (CD)

Executant: #: 12160

The hymns on this CD are sung in various Russian chant forms (Znammeny, Valaam, Carpatho-Russian, etc.) by an all male choir, but almost as many are sung in either Byzantine chant or related chant forms. It is a terrific cross section of the Eastern Orthodox chant expression in English that is happening in many parishes today. The hymn selection is both festal and is principally from the Lenten-Paschal cycle. Liner insert includes the entire text in English.

I WILL SING UNTO THE LORD

Executant: #: 12164

In 2006, the Summer School of Orthodox Liturgical Music marked the fifteenth anniversary of its founding. The recording project brought together approximately 30 singers under the direction of Nikolai Myshkin, a Moscow choir director who has been a long–time faculty member at the School. The repertoire and the style of singing are reflective of the School’s musical orientation—preserving the best traditions of the “new Russian Choral School”. More rehearsal and recording time would have likely yielded a slightly more polished product—the entire project was accomplished with only two rehearsals and four days of recording sessions. Nevertheless, the recording is a tribute to the dedication and perseverance of the School’s founders, faculty, and supporters, who have created an unparalleled institution for cultivating the art of Russian Orthodox liturgical singing outside of Russia.
