This recording is a first - the first recording of the Vesperal Divine Liturgy of Holy Saturday sung in English, following the Athonite tradition, and using the translation from St. Anthony's Monastery in Florence, AZ. The choir is composed of skilled male and female voices. Liner notes include hymn text for major hymns in English, and the Homily for Holy Saturday by St. Epiphanus of Cyprus.
ReviewBy: Fr. Seraphim Dedes
This is some of the best chanting I have heard in English. The antiphonal chanting of male and female choirs, the overall style, and the live drone make for a unique and impressive recording."
