This is a treasury of Byzantine chant unprecedented in its range and breadth: 7 CDs representing the Serbian, Bulgarian, and Greek traditions of Byzantine Chant, a total of 7 hours, 38 minutes of music. The Serbian tradition is represented by the albums: 1) I Will Proclaim Thy Name to My Brethren, by the Monastic Choir of Archangels Michael and Gabriel, Kovil, Serbia; 2) Psalmody of the 13th-14th Centuries, by Dragoslav Pavle Aksentjevic; and 3) Music of Old Serbia, by Dragoslav Pavle Aksentjevic; the Bulgarian tradition: 4) Bulgarian Hymns, by the Choir of Sofia Clergy, Kirill Popov, cond.; and the Greek tradition: 5) Festal Byzantine Hymns, 6) Vespers for the Feast of St. Mary Magdalene; and 7) Matins (Orthros) for the Feast of St. Mary Magdalene, all three by the Annunciation Womens Monastery Choir, Ormilya, Greece. This is a rare opportunity to obtain these recordings, originally made in the 1980s and 1990s. The beautiful booklet is in Russian only; the MP3 disc has a player best suited to run on Windows OS, although Mac users can import all the tracks into iTunes and listen to them in that fashion.
