The fifth in a series of recording for each day of Holy Week, produced in collaboration with Crete University Press. The Holy Pascha service is the joyous celebration of the Resurrection, and is accompanied by a full color liner notes booklet over 100 pages, in Greek and English, containing the full hymn text and Byzantine notation. The final volume to complete the set of Holy Week chant.
ReviewBy: Benjamin Williams
As with all Vatopedi recordings, the quality and clarity of the recording is superb. This recording offers the traditional hymns of Holy Saturday, and both a contemporary and ancient setting of Behold the Bridegroom Cometh. The Musical School of the Holy Monastery of Vatopaidi is one of the cradles of Byzantine music. It has endowed the monastery with a history of cantors, a rich library of books and manuscripts, a collection of recordings, and a rich tradition of chant which is continued by the contemporary choir of Vatopedi fathers. This recording of the Holy Pascha Service, sung in the traditional Athonite fashion and recorded live in the monastery captures the Orthodox Easter service in a very traditional form, yet one which conveys the transcendent joy of the Resurrection in a manner which imparts the atmosphere of devotion characteristic of Mt. Athos.
