CYCLES OF GRACE: HYMNS FROM THE GREAT FEASTS

Executant: by 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.

SACRED TREASURES II: CHORAL MASTERWORKS FROM THE SISTINE CHAPEL (AUDIO CD)

Executant: by Gregorio Allegri performed by the Osnabruck Youth Choir #: 12841

The psalm "Miserere mei Deus" is a prayer for mercy, contrition and renewal. Since the 1630's, Gregorio Allegri's famous setting has been sung at dawn during Holy Week, while the Pope kneels in prayer in the solemn candlelit atmosphere of the Sistine Chapel. This contemporary version, recorded in the spectral grandeur of Osnabruck Cathedral, adds new material composed by Vladimir Ivanoff to the ethereal harmonies of the Osnabruck Youth Choir and the elegiac brass tones of the cornetto, recreating the mysterious beauty of this sacred classic.
