Among the most recent recordings by Lycourgos Angelopoulos, this time with the Byzantien Choir of Greece and soloist performance by Divna Ljubojevic--a Serbian cantor with the Melodi Choir. The performance then, alternates between traditional "Greek" style Byzantine chant and "Russian" style Serbian chant. Liner notes by Michel Adamis on Byzantine Chant are very well written and helpful. No hymn text.
ReviewBy: Benjamin Williams
The counterpoint that this recording provides, between traditional Byzantine chant performed by one of the most well known names in that genre, and Russian-styly Serbian chant by a relative new comer, is both novel and refreshing. Both genres are exceedingly well performed, and they mesh together as a representation of the historic and geographic "glory" of Byzantium in a manner that is somewhat unexpected, given the Byzantine emphasis on melody and the Russian emphasis on harmony. On the one hand, for instance, "The Great Supplicatory Kanon" is pure Greek Byzantine style and superb. On the other, Divna's performance of the Magnificat (Hail Mary) is almost breathtaking, and Divna performing in Byzantine style with the Byzantine Choir of Greece, as in "Axion Estin" is magnificent. Also included are hymns arranged by Petros Lambadarios. The only missing element is hymn text. It is, though, still a wonderful and edifying listening experience.
