Our Father, Madrigal Sofia Chamber Choir (mp3 download)
Item No 008784D
by the Madrigal Sofia Chamber Choir
in Church Slavonic
"Our Father" is the most important prayer in the Christian world. It is also called the Lord's Prayer, as it was given by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. The Lord's Prayer contains all the basic moral principles of the Christian faith. It is thus naturally called the Short Gospel. "Our Father" is said during each church service. Many melodies have been created on the basis of this prayer and a lot of choral works have been written, which are performed not only during worship, but also at concert stages. They are in the repertoire of choirs with a continued interest in the Orthodox Church music. Some of these works are included in the program along with other chants, like "The Creed" (Symbol of the Credo). This collection is striking for its superb assembly of hymns around the theme of "Our Father;" they fit perfectly to create a wonderfully spiritual feeling, to say nothing of conveying the theological truth of the subject!
Various selections are performed by Nicola Ghiuselev, Orlin Anastassov, staurophoros economos Mina Minchev, staurophoros economos Tosko Kazakin, Protodeacon Stefan Markov, Sofia Boys' Choir (conducted by Adriana Blagoeva), The Seven Saints Chamber Choir (conducted by Dimitar Grigorov), Sofia Priest Choir (conducted by Archpriest Kiril Popov), Sofia Orthodox Choir (conducted by Miroslav Popsavov), Male Choir of Sveta Nedelya Cathedral (conducted by Archpriest Kiril Popov).
