St. Symeon the New Theologian Orthodox Church in Birmingham, Alabama, has been blessed by an abundance of musical talent. Gifted young voices, with a musically educated and energetic young conductor, who are willing to explore new and innovative repertoire—all these things have begun yielding fruit in the recent crop of CDs released by two different ensembles within the parish: the full parish choir (Cat. Nos. I-119 and I-121) and the St. Symeon Orthodox Church Octet, featured on the present CD. On this CD the listener will hear an abundance of melodies and arrangements that are familiar as well as some heard in English for the very first time. The music is well served by the crystal clear and transparent sound of the ensemble, although some selections would have been more convincing with a larger group. One can only wish the young singers of St. Symeon Orthodox Church continued growth and success, and look forward to their future creative musical explorations.—V.M.
