THE SOUL OF ORTHODOX CHANT (CD)

Executant: Divna Ljubojevic and the Melodi Choir #: 12800

The latest recording by Divna and the Choir Melodi is a selection of hymns from the festal cycle of the Nativity. Released in 2010, in contrast to the hymns she performed with L. Angelopoulos and the Greek Byzantine Choir on “The Glory of Byzantium”, this recording has the pure and intimate feeling of a small choir—which it is. In addition to the festal hymns are two carols. Liner notes in French and English, complete hymn text included.

PANAGIA

Executant: #: 12808

The repertoire on this CD reflects the "ever-presence" of the Most Holy Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary (Panagia) in Orthodox hymnography. Out of the vast range of possibilities, Archangel Voices has selected a mix between works that are familiar and traditional and those that reveal new vistas of the sacred repertoire. A number of works—by such Russian masters as Chesnokov, Kastalsky, Nikolsky, and Yaichkov—are appearing for the first time in English adaptations. Works by relatively unknown 20th-century composers such as Ilyashenko and Cecil A. Bailey are brought to light for the first time. Works by modern-day Orthodox composers, currently living and creating in North America—Archpriest Paul Harrilchak, Vladimir Morosan, Kurt Sander, Benedict Sheehan, Richard Toensing, and Nazo Zakkak—round out the program.
