Two weeks later, on December 1, we will release the album "The Glory of Byzantium: Christmas Hymns".
Following the success of The Glory Of Byzantium, Jade Music is releasing The Glory of Byzantium: Christmas Hymns. The album features the Byzantine Choir Of Greece under the direction of Lycourgos Angelopoulos. Compositions on this recording were mostly written by composers of the 17th and 18th centuries; Petros Bereketis, Hourmouzios Hartofylax, Petros Lampadarios, and Petros Peloponnisios among others. These centuries belong to the most important when it comes to post-Byzantine art.While I have not listened to either of these CDs yet, I am interested in them since Jade Music has consistently provided high quality products in the past.
