A value package of three CDs, in sleeve packaging with no liner notes in Arabic and English, no hymn text. Most of the CDs have been previously released as singles, but this package makes them available again, and at a very good price.
ReviewBy: Benjamin Williams
The 3 CDs include: the Feast of St. John of Damascus, Paraklesis and Ecclesiastical Hymns. The Feast of St. John of Damascus CD includes selections from Vespers and Matins for this saint and hierarch, the Paraklesis CD offers most of the hymns of the Paraklesis service; the Ecclesiastical Hymns includes major hymns from Liturgy and Vespers as well as Holy Week and Pascha. These are very pleasant and enjoyable CDs, providing a representative recording of the Byzantine chant typical of the Arabic orthodox churches, especially those of the Patriarchate of Antioch.
