The combined Choir of the Holy Assumption Laura of the Caves in Kiev and the Kiev Theological Academy and Seminary conducted by Hierodeacon Kirill (Borisevich)

The Nativity of Christ is one of the greatest Christian feasts, which announces the great mystery of the Incarnation of the Son of God - the Saviour of the world. The angelic hymn «Glory to God in the highestľ» resounds with a particular solemnity. Other hymns are also imbued with festive exultation.
Recorded in the second part of the CD are carols - old folk songs, which are traditionally sung at Christmastide with the wishes of riches, well being and good health. Carols, which are characterized by the naive simplicity of words, the warm and heartfelt music, are becoming increasingly popular.

The Blessed Sabbath - Precentor of the Monastic Choir of the Valaam Monastery - H. German (Ryabtsev)

The Blessed Sabbath - Precentor of the Monastic Choir of the Valaam Monastery - H. German (Ryabtsev)
ID: VOL.22.0
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

On the eve of Great Saturday, which is also called the blessed Sabbath, the office of the burial of the Saviour is celebrated, which begins with the troparions «The Noble Joseph», «When Thou didst descend…» and «The Myrrh-Bearing Women». After that «The Evlogitaria» are sung before the Shroud, which has been brought into the middle of the church from the sanctuary. Special verses are read which express the grief and awe of the Christian soul before the God-Man.

The Divine Liturgy is celebrated after Vespers on Saturday morning. Its hymns call people to think about the time from the death of Christ on the Cross and His burial to His Resurrection from the dead. «Let all mortal flesh keep silence», sung in place of the Cherubic hymn, reminds us of the redemptive act of the Saviour. Equally moving and beautiful are «Weep not for Me, O Mother» and «The Thrice-Holy» accompanied by bell-ringing.

The monastic choir sings these hymns in Byzantine, Znamenny, Valaam, Bulgarian and Greek chants with deep feeling, restraint and grief, as befits Lent.

Precentor of the Monastic Choir of the Valaam Monastery - Hierodeacon German (Ryabtsev)

The monastic life and heroism of the spirit are likened to the way of the Cross in both sense of responsibility and difficulty. The hymns of the CD as if show the landmarks on this innermost way: the call to monastic life (Ringing of the bells), the taking of monastic vows («Open Thy fatherly embrace» and the Cherubic hymn), repentance and temperance in monastic life (Penitential verses), and the end of monastic deeds and earthly life (stanza for the burial of monks and «May your memory be eternal»).
The hymns, which resound with austerity, introduce the listener to the mystical realm of the monks" life, as their works and deeds are hidden form an outsider"s eye.
Colour booklet (8 pages) in the Russian and English languages with a short narration on the monastic life and the recorded hymns.

Mark Williams leads the Choir of the Jesus College Cambridge through an evocative selection of choral works inspired in varying ways by the songs of Solomon.

Songs of love have been written from the earliest records of human existence. None are more passionately ecstatic than the Song of Solomon, which occupies a unique place in the Holy Bible in both style and content. It contains lyric poems of love and courtship, as might have been sung at Jewish weddings. For Christians, these poems speak to the beauty of the union of Christ and his ‘bride’, the Church. The present collection presents a diverse group of choral works written between the 16th century and the present day, with most inspired by this unique sacred text.

Recorded by Péter Erdélyi at the Franciscan Church in Sümeg, June, 2009 - special thanks to the Franciscan Community of Sümeg

The cult of the Holy Cross is the cult of the One who was crucified. As Thomas Aquinas explains, the honour, love and devotion which the Church bore toward the one who died on the cross was, as it were, transferred to the tree on which his blood was spilt, then secondarily to the various representations of the cross. In other words, contemplation of the crucifix aroused and deepened in believers honour, love and devotion for the Saviour; the cross in its material aspect aided the spirit of worship.
