MALE CHOIR OF SVETA NEDELYA CATHEDRAL - SOFIA
ID: GD114
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

Recorded at the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Sofia, in 1999

This is yet another release from the series of Slavonic Orthodox Chants in Gega New's catalogue. The Male Choir of the Sveta Nedelya Cathedral in Sofia is one of the oldest Bulgarian church choirs, whose foundation (1897) and development is associated with the name of the great Bulgarian musician Nikolai Nikolaev. He is one of the founding fathers of musical life in Bulgaria, and is connected with the establishment of some of the first musical institutions in the country. Currently, the choir is directed by Kiril Popov and he has dedicated this programme to the 2000th anniversary of the birth of Jesus Christ. The release presents chants from the All Night Vigil and the Holy Liturgy, strictly observing the order of performance in the Divine Service used in common practice nowadays. Some of the chants are original works by Petar Dinev and Dobri Hristov (Bulgaria), and by the Russian composers Alexander Grechaninov, Pavel Chesnokov, Ipolitov-Ivanov, etc. The release also includes arrangements made by different musicians throughout the years. The authentic sounding as well as the participation of priests makes this recording invaluable. The performance of the choir has achieved the characteristic emotional and psychological effect resulting from the diction and the manner of sounding.

Orthodox Chants - Orlin Anastassov, bass
ID: GD296
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

A young Bulgarian bass singer has been recently having spectacular success at the biggest opera stages throughout the world. Critics compare him to Samuel Ramey and other opera singers, but they always stress on the slight Slavonic edge to his voice. Orlin Anasatssov is only 26 years old but the list of roles he has sung is amazing: Ramphis in Aida, Filippo II in Don Carlos, Basilio in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Ferrando in Il Trovatore, the bass parts in Somnambula and Norma, La Boheme, Rigoletto, Puritani, Ernani, Macbeth, Attila, Simoe Boccanegra, Faust, etc. - all of them difficult roles, sung by only a few opera singers. He has participated at Covent Garden in London, the Paris Grand Opera, La Scala in Milan, Teatro Liceu in Barcelona, Dusseldorf, Arena di Verona, Teatro Real in Madrid, Rome, Karlsruhe, Toulouse, Amsterdam, Washington, Trieste, Palma de Mallorca, Puerto Rico, Lima in Peru, Palermo … It is impossible to mention all opera theatres and towns which he has visited as guest singer. Among the conductors he has worked with are the names of Sir Colin Davis, Georges Pretre, Mark Elder, Daniel Oren, Riccardo Chailly. Along with opera singing, Orlin Anastassov is also attracted to singing Orthodox chants and just as the great singer Boris Christoff, he also indulges in studying church music. This programme is a result of this. The booklet of the CD includes the texts to the chants in three languages: Church-Slavonic, Bulgarian, and English.
Neofit, Metropolitan of Rousse writes in the CD booklet: "Orlin is a new and precious pearl of Bulgarian opera art, a cause of praise for the town of Rousse and Bulgaria. With admiration and indebtedness he dedicates his present work to the 90th anniversary of the birth of the unforgettable Boris Christoff. And with his youthful zeal for the boundless heights of art he recalls to us the flight of the eagle…".

Peter Dinev - Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom

Peter Dinev - Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom
ID: GD120
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Liturgy

The release contains one of the most significant compositions of Peter Dinev - a person with great services to the preservation and research of medieval Bulgarian music. As a musicologist and pedagogue, he dedicated himself to Orthodox music. For many years Dinev worked on the "translation" of the ecclesiastic characters into modern linear notation, which created opportunities for a number of liturgical works from the first centuries of Christianity in Bulgaria to be included in the repertoire. The recorded tracks are the composer's elaboration of old Orthodox chants done with mastership and inspiration. By interweaving of voices and timbres, the conductor, Stoyan Kralev has outlined the beauty of the choral songs laying the stress on the contrast between the sonority and elevation of the solo participation in prayers, rich in tenderness, humbleness and faith. With their emotionality and abundance of vocal skills and musical nuances the performances of Madrigal Chamber Choir draw the listener's attention, filling his heart with good will, kindness and love for people and God.

Various: Glory o You, Lord (Gloire à Toi, Seigneur); (Amen for Your Soul/Amen pour l`âme)

An original CD presenting the rare opportunity to possess a recording of Armenian Liturgy. The Holy Apostolic Church of Armenia is one of the oldest churches in the Orient. The chants of three composers mainly are included in the service. Most frequently the liturgy of Ekmalian created in the last decade of the 19th century is used. The chants are beautifully harmonized for mixed choir performance, some of them with a soloist. The release includes twelve church chants, where the widely sung-out jubilation parts in expression of man's homage to God and Jesus Christ alternate with melodic-and-recitative episodes which have originated from the psalmodic singing. The programme strikes with the virtuosity of the hymns, the variety of the richly ornamented melodies, the interesting harmonic devices and the organ accompaniment. The music brings the atmosphere of peace and concentration, of contemplation and deep thought of God the Creator and the sacrifice of His Son.

The first boys' choir in Sofia was founded in 1968. The idea of the founder Lilyana Todorova was to introduce a new model in the tradition of Bulgarian choral singing. Sofia Boys' Choir established itself quickly in Bulgarian choral art. Its repertoire has been especially varied after 1989, when conductor of the choir became Adriana Blagoeva. Members of the choir are boys aged between 8 and 15, who are trained by experienced teachers on a special curriculum. As many as 1500 children have been trained in the choir since its foundation. Its repertoire includes dozens of works composed between the 15th to the end of the 20th centuries and also embraces works by Bulgarian composers. The choir has always won prestigious prizes when participating at international competitions and festivals and its concerts have been loudly applauded both by the audience and the critics. The choir's conductor, Adriana Blagoeva, graduated from the Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music in Sofia majoring in choral conducting. She has worked actively for the choir's fame as a serious choral ensemble of high quality, capable of interpreting works ranging from songs to oratorios.
