The service of Orthros (Matins) for the Feast of St. Nicholas. This feast comes early in December, and is often unheard by most Christians. On the other hand, it is in the fore-feast of the Nativity so its hymnology contains Nativity hymnology. Some of the track titles are misleading as to their content, for instance Track 1 contains the Kathisma and stichologia in Tona 1, Track 6 the Katavasias of the service. Liner notes in Greek, very limited hymn text.
ReviewBy: Benjamin Williams
This performance is by a contemporary Greek chorus of psaltis or chanters, singing in traditional contemporary Byzantine style. Thus, it evokes similarities with Byzantine monastic chant recordings. It contains a very good ison and resonant voices that blend well together. The recording is quite good, the acoustic quality of the church in which it was recorded is very good. This is what you could expect to hear if you walked into a Greek Orthodox parish in Thessaloniki of Athens on the feast day of St. Nicholas of Myra.
