Boston Byzantine Choir

The Boston Byzantine Choir, who have been in existence now over twenty years, are one of the “standard references” for Byzantine chant as performed in North America. Under the direction of Charles R. Marge, they now have a portfolio of five albums, the most recent being “Lenten Journey,” released in 2013. They have regularly received accolades for their masterful rendering of the traditional tones and hymns in the English language without a diminution of form and essence. The result is a presentation of a tradition of sacred music that is accessible to western listeners. With “Lenten Journey” this choir now offers not just a collection of favorite hymns in “First Fruits,” and hymns from the Divine Liturgy in “Mystical Supper,” but a triad across the liturgical cycle from Great Lent to Pascha that begins with “Lenten Journey,” continues with “Thy Passion,” and concludes with “Thy Resurrection.” Fr. Nicholas Kastanas of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology describes “Lenten Journey” as being “blessed with the spirit of sweet holiness, and chanted in the traditional Byzantine Musicological style with gracious hospitality, effectiveness, consistency and lovely detail!”
