Ακούμε ένα χορωδιακό του σημαντικού Ρώσου συνθέτη εκκλησιαστικής μουσικής Alexander Arkhangelsky : “Υμνείτε Το Όνομα Του Κυρίου”.
Στο έργο του AA το βυζαντινό μέλος εμπλουτίζεται με στοιχεία από την δυτική πολυφωνική παράδοση. Το αποτέλεσμα, όπως ακούμε, είναι σπάνιας ομορφιάς και κατανυκτικότητας.

Here’s a choral by the important Russian composer of church music Alexander Arkhangelsky : Praise Ye The Name Of The Lord.
In AA’s work the Byzantine chant is enriched with elements from the Western polyphonic tradition. The result, as we hear, is of rare beauty and solemnity.

Enjoy!


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!

* 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!
