The Matins of Pascha are sung in more familiar syllabic melodies and more elaborate katavasiae; several melismatic (calophonic) melodies are also sung, using composed versions (by Chrysaphes the Younger, the Priest Balasios, and Petros Bereketis), which are fourteen and fifteen minutes in length. These recordings, made on-site in the Vatopaidi Monastery, provide modern-day listeners, the majority of whom do not have the possibility of visiting the Holy Mountain, a unique opportunity of hearing this ancient chant tradition. CD contains title listings and introductory articles in Russian and English, but no text translations.
