Another “classic” CD from Valaam, which illustrates the familial closeness between Byzantine and Russian Znamenny and Valaam Chants, especially when the latter are performed with a sustained ison (drone). Listeners will be particularly fascinated to hear traditional Byzantine melodies sung in Church Slavonic (including the now “famous” hymn “O Virgin Pure” composed by St. Nectarios of Aegina), re-creating a process that ocurred some 1000 years ago, when Christianity was first brought to Rus’ from Byzantium and its chants were adapted to Slavonic. IMPORTANT NOTE TO CUSTOMERS: The cover photo of this CD is IDENTICAL to CD D166 (Foi et Amour), but the musical material on these two discs is NOT the same.--V.M.
