A collection of sacred and secular compositions by Greek-American composer, Tikey Zes, with organ accompaniment. This work features liturgical pieces from Pascha and the Divine Liturgy sung in a polyphonic choral setting.
Fr. Apostolos Hill
Greek/American Orthodox music has evolved over the last several years to an art-form in its own right. Cappella Romana catapults it into the future with this important work. One gets a sense of hearing the development of this art-from in real-time while listening to these beautiful tracks. Familiar and yet new, the arrangements of Mr. Zes are fluid and expansive yet remain true to the traditional settings of the hymns. Though the organ rather leaps out at the listener in the first track but recedes into the background very quickly. What is left is the magnificent collection of voices that comprise Cappella Romana, the likes of which I have not previously encountered in Byzantine musical recordings. I highly recommend adding this CD to your discography.
