Completed in 1960, this outstanding choral setting of the Orthodox Divine Liturgy is also one of the first to have been written in English, using the official translation of the Antiochian Archdiocese. Greek-American composer Peter Michaelides perceptively combines elements of Byzantine chant with modern neo-classicism to create unaccompanied liturgical music of uncommon elegance and spiritual depth. The CD comes with a deluxe 20-page booklet with extensive essays and full color photography of the stunning St. Barbara Greek Orthodox Church in Santa Barbara, California.
