Description    
A selection of chants from Holy Monday through Holy Saturday by the Greek Orthodox Seminary in Jerusalem, conducted by Fr. Aristobolus.
ReviewBy: Fr. Apostolos Hill
This recording features the chanters of the Greek Orthodox Patriarchal Seminary of Jerusalem on Mount Zion singing the traditional and, for many, familiar hymns of the Holy Week period. Sung in the original Greek, the hymns are nevertheless understandable due to the clear articulation of the singers who are obviously quite comfortable with them. While no hymn list or texts are provided, a list of which tracks correspond to each day of Holy Week is provided. This recording, by virtue of its not being a performance, per se, has a very prayerful and reverent air to it which pulls the listener into the experience of the hymns. The Seminary is, according to the liner notes, ?engaged in the preservation, study, and dissemination not only of the meaning and musical grace of Byzantine music, but also its Orthodox theology.? One of the hallmarks of Byzantine music is its adaptability to certain regional or ethnic nuances. Two different groups may appropriate the same hymns a bit differently and the nuances of the Jerusalem district peer through in this recording. This recording would be a delightful choice for ambient music playing softly in the background. It is unobtrusive, inauspicious and prayerful.
