HAVE MERCY ON ME, O GOD: THE GREAT CANON OF ST. ANDREW OF CRETE (CD)

Executant: directed by J. Michael Thompson performed by Schola Cantorum of St. Peter’s-in-the-Loop Church #: 12140

The Church is continually calling us all to repentance and renewal. For centuries, this call has been facilitated during Great Lent in the Byzantine Churches by the Great Canon of St. Andrew of Crete—a long poetic meditation on sin and repentance complete with the imagery of the Scriptures. Now for the first time sung in modern English and in its proper liturgical context, Have Mercy on Me, O God presents both the piety and artistry of Byzantine liturgical music that is easily accessible for Western Christians.
