It must have been around this time that I started looking for good performances of Eastern Orthodox chant. I heard it some years before, and fell in love with it. It is not easy to find the right performances though, as there are many bad ones on the market. This one falls in between the categories.
Interestingly in this day and age of war and destruction, this record has both Russian and Ukrainian Orthodox chants. I don’t hear that much of a difference, but I didn’t invest much time in finding out. It is just beautiful chant.
