Around 30 years of my life, I listened to and chanted byzantine chants, and during this time, only every once in a while you listen to a new recording that really touches you! Yesterday I listened to the newly released Passion Week video by the newly establish Byzantine Collection in Lebanon. Simply superb! Combines traditional with ornamental chanting, truly Byzantine with a bit of Arabic (Antioch) flavor, and young strong voices with old and seasoned masters of chanting. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, enough to look forward to the Easter video by the same collection in a couple of days!
