Editorial Review of Christmas With the Celts (Live):

We can talk only approximately about the date and authorship of chants represented on the disk. Some musicologists believe that Eastern Orthodox liturgical music originates from the singing of levites in ancient Israel. Making its way with Christianity and changing in the light of national features, Eastern Orthodox (Byzantine) church choir music has begun church-singing culture of Georgia, Bulgaria, Serbia and Rus. No doubt, "The First Ode of the Easter Canon" is the most unique and rare recording on this disk. The Church attributes its authorship to St. John the Damascene, who lived in the 8th century. He established church "oktoechos" (eight tones) - common base of liturgical music. Such names as John Glyka, St John Koukousel, John Klad and others marked the period of "Kalophonia" ("beautiful singing") in the 12-14th centuries. The works of Theodore of Phokea (the 18th century) are the best samples of kalophonia-music. The base of Russian Orthodox music - Znamenny tune was usually called "Angel-like". It is mainly because of the power of prayer and spiritual purity of the echoi (tones) melodies, crystallized in standing of Holy Rus before the God.**** The ensemble of medieval music "Sreteniye" was founded in 1990 in Kharkov, by graduates of Kharkov institute of beaux arts. Well-known Greek protopsalt L. Angelopoulos gave invaluable help to "Sretenye". Not only he supplemented the repertoire of the choir with a number of very rare ancient chants shared his knowledge of Byzantine singing characteristic features.
