THE SATURDAY SERVICE OF GREAT VESPERS: CHANTED IN THE THIRD TONE (CD)
This is the fifth recording by Eikona, a contemporary Byzantine music chorale, and continues their efforts to record the principal services in the Eastern liturgikon. This Service of Great Vespers is in the third tone, with music arranged by John M. Boyer. The quality of the recording and the production overall is very good. The services of Great Vespers rotate through the eight Byzantine tones, so this CD provides one of the eight, and includes constituent parts of the service such as the Evening Psalm and two litanies, in addition to the hymnology of the service. The recording is in English.
