* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

    I wasn’t familiar with this composer’s work. I’ll have to explore it more thoroughly. Your blog is a cultural experience. Thank you!

    • Ah, thank you so much! I’ll pass on your compliment to hubby who’s post this is. Cherubini is mostly known for his operas [Médée – Démophoon – Pimmalione…] but he is an amazing composer with a huge repertoire and his requiem is just exceptional! I know you’ll enjoy exploring his work! Thank you again for the reblog!
