From the Choir of St. Symeon the New Theologian Church in Birmingham, Alabama, comes another fine collection of Orthodox liturgical hymns. Sung in crisp, well-articulated English, it reflects the musical and stylistic variety that typifies flourishing Orthodox parishes in North America. Slavic-style choral hymns line up alongside Byzantine-style chants; arrangements by well-known Orthodox composers alternate with unusual and rarely head adaptations (mostly by the ensemble’s enterprising director, Alexander Fecanin), all skillfully rendered by this group of young, energetic, and versatile singers. The sound of this ensemble is tuneful, synchronized, transparent and clear, which is especially crucial when they break into rich, eight-part harmony, typical of the Russian Moscow School. Featured on this 2-disc set are the main hymns—ordinaries and propers—of the Nativity Vigil, as well as several traditional Ukrainian and Carpatho-Russian carols, a truly sumptuous musical banquet that will be certain to enrich your Nativity celebration. Highly recommended! —V. M.
