Order No. 007252
By Archangel Voices, Directed by Dr. Vladimir Moroson
This CD strives to capture the joy of the Resurrection—as much as is possible, short of being at an actual Paschal service. It assembles some of most inspired hymns of Paschal Matins and Divine Liturgy, from both the Slavic and Greek traditions, all vividly and energetically sung in English by an ensemble of professional-level voices. Byzantine, Kievan, Russian "Greek" and znamenny chants, most of them newly arranged and re-composed for the English language, are intermingled with traditional favorites by Bortniansky and Makarov—also adapted into English. Primarily a cappella.
As with its previous CDs, the 13-voice Archangel Voices ensemble demonstrates what can be done on a high level of excellence by a relatively small group of voices.
Angels in Heaven
We have Seen Christ's Resurrection
The Noble Joseph
Who is So Great a God
