WITH THE VOICE OF THE ARCHANGEL (CD)

Executant: #: 12174

This CD focuses upon the soloistic elements of Orthodox Services (solos, duets, and trios, rather than full choir), drawing upon both the Byzantine and Slavic traditions. Produced by PSALM (Pan Orthodox Society for the Advancement of Liturgical Music) it is hoped this CD will encourage the exploration of the musical possibilities offered by a relatively small compliment of voices.

This collection of Byzantine hymnography in English may come as a revelation to Orthodox and non-Orthodox alike.

Executant: Gloriae Dei Cantores #: 12181

Gloriae Dei Cantores first recording in Super Audio CD featuring the North American recorded premiere of Georgy Sviridov`s Ineffable Mystery, a gorgeous sacred choral suite. In his memory, the choir sang this set of pieces in Moscow and the Golden Ring on their third tour of Russia in 1998. Georgy Sviridov,who was one of Shostakovich`s favorite students, wrote the music for Moscow`s leading television news program and became one of the leading composers during the Soviet regime. His vocal music has been championed by Dmitri Hvorostovsky, the great Russian baritone. Gloriae Dei Cantores, having already recorded "the best anthology of Russian music" (American Record Guide for Sacred Songs of Russia), now adds this rich collection of Russian sacred music to their discography. Also included are excerpts from the Tchaikovsky`s Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom and the Rachmaninoff All-Night Vigil. These three composers and their works form a CD not to be missed by choral and Russian music fans.

CYCLES OF GRACE: HYMNS FROM THE GREAT FEASTS

Executant: Fr. Apostolos Hill #: 12183

Two Disc CD Set

In the Eastern Christian tradition, the cycle of Great Feasts follows the Church`s liturgical calendar beginning on September 1 and running through August. It is comprised of twelve fixed and variable Feasts, with Pascha (Easter in the West), the "feast of feasts" around which all the rest are centered. Pascha is the ultimate variable feast, with its date changing each year. Associated with Pascha are the feasts of Palm Sunday, Ascension and Pentecost that precede or follow it by a specific number of days. Thus these Great Feasts tend to be associated together.
