This CD features 28 tracks, taken from Vespers, Matins, and Divine Liturgy of the great feast of the Elevation (or Exaltation) of the Holy Cross. All the selections are sung in English, but they draw upon a broad variety of traditional Orthodox melodies and hymn styles, ranging from Byzantine and Carpatho-Rusyn chant, to Russian-style harmonizations; several new compositions by American Orthodox composers are also included. Especially prominent are numerous "pattern melodies" (prosomoia, podobny) that greatly enrich the hymnography of this feast. As the musical directors of this CD have clearly recognized, much of the Orthodox Church's musical and hymnographic richness lies in the music of the feasts. This CD will not only provide an enjoyable spiritual listening experience, but will serve to broaden the horizons of musical repertoire.
