WHAT EARTHLY JOY (CD)
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.
