This album is a tribute to the splendors of Byzantine music, source of the
oldest Christian traditions. This is one of the greatest recordings of
Byzantine music that exists in the world; a true and internationally
recognized masterpiece. This CD has been conceived as a subtle dialogue
between two outstanding artists representative of this renowned repertoire:
a legend and an up-and-comer.
The legend is Lycourgos Angelopoulos, head of the Byzantine Chorus of
Greece. He is the world’s foremost specialist of Byzantine music. During its
28 years of activity, the Chorus has participated in more than a thousand
concerts, liturgies and other shows – including several nights of vigil at the
Mount Sinai Monastery. The Chorus performs in Europe, the Middle East,
Asia and the United States.
The new star is Divna Ljubojevic. With two albums, this Serbian singer
has earned a reputation as an exceptional interpreter of the Orthodox
repertoire. Her voice, flawless and crystal-like, moves instantaneously.
