This CD contains hymns from Vespers, Matins, and various feasts, chanted in Greek in a traditional Byzantine style. A variety of hymn styles are represented: syllabic strophic hymns, as well as as extended melismatic renditions (kratima) by a variety of Byzantine composers. Other traditional features of the psaltic art, such as microtonal intonation, graceful articulation, and live rather than mechanical ison, and dynamic contrasts are employed, as appropriate. The singers are clearly skilled and well-versed in the style. The booklet contains an introductory article in Russian; the titles are given in Greek and in Russian. This CD will be enjoyed by those interested in hearing quality renditions of Byzantine chant.
