Description    
A recording of many of the hymns from Vespers and Matins of the Feast of St. John of Damascus, sung by the monastic choir of Balamand Monastery and the seminarians from the St. John of Damascus Institute of Theology. Includes many of the traditional hymns and those specific to the services of the Feast of a saint.
ReviewBy: B. Williams
This is another traditional Byzantine recording, sung in Arabic by monks and seminarians from Syria. While the recording is recent, the chant style is traditional and reminiscent of the chant from Simonopetra Monastery on Mt. Athos. The chant flows timelessly through the two services, raising praises to God while moving the listener peacefully into the Kingdom. The hymns on this recording are sung to the patron saint of the seminary, and the piety and commitment of the chanters comes through.
