The Orthodox East has always viewed its earthly music-making as a living icon of angelic praise, a physical form of mystical participation in the ceaseless song of Heaven’s “bodiless powers.” John Michael Boyer will lead the men of Cappella Romana in a program of traditional Byzantine music expressing in song the angels’ mediation between the earthly and the divine, including chants in Greek for the feasts of the Archangels, the Annunciation, and Pascha (Easter) and from the Divine Liturgy.

The ensemble will also perform selections in English from Cappella Romana’s critically acclaimed recording, “The Divine Liturgy in English in Byzantine Chant.”

This program will also be performed November 4 at Whitman College, Walla Walla, Washington, and November 5 at Maryhill Museum, Goldendale, Washington.
