From the Monastery Choir of St John of San Francisco
“It is our monastery’s vision that a uniquely American chant will gradually develop, growing up from the seeds of our inherited traditions . . . an organic hybrid of different influences from our own folk melodies and harmonies, rooted in the traditions of our ancestors.” To this end, this CD represents a selection of the many different styles of music sung at the monastery, from Valaam chant, to Byzantine-style chant, to some newer music which was composed specifically to meet the needs of the monastery.
