REVIEWS

"This beautiful recording will inspire listeners not only through the elegance of its Byzantine melodies chanted by a pious group of young men and women, but also by the uplifting poetry in the hymns of this important day of the ecclesiastical year."

"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."

"The Panagia Koukouzelissa Choir offers a mystical experience of the Orthodox reasonable worship with a CD of Byzantine hymns in English. The choir's heartfelt, unpretentious chanting is reminiscent of the Athonite musical tradition. What better way to proclaim the mystery of Christ's Resurrection to American audiences!"
