Another cross section of Eastern Orthodox chant, but with a totally unique sound and flavor, owing to the performance by Orlin Anastassov, a contemporary bass. The track selection offers a wide range of arrangements by 20th century composers. Good quality liner notes with hymn text in Slavonic, Bulgarian and English.
ReviewBy: Vladimir Morosan
Solo arias on liturgical texts with choral accompaniment--what may be termed "sacred opera"--have had a long and distinguished history in the Russian and other Slavic Orthodox Churches, since the 19th century, when worshippers flocked to churches to hear stars of the Imperial opera houses perform during Great Lent, when the theaters were closed. Whether or not these compositions are deemed appropriate for church, they continue to inspire performers such as Bulgarian basso Orlin Anastassov, who follows in the footsteps of such giants as Fyodor Chaliapin and Boris Christov. He sings with reverence and good taste, not to mention a great voice, making this a "must have" CD for those who love and appreciate this style of sacred music.
