Prophet Habakkuk (Abbacum) (7th c. B.C.). New Hieromartyr John priest (1919). A Joyous St Philip Fast/Advent to All!
Cappella Romana Media combines passion with scholarship in its exploration of early and contemporary music of the Christian East and West.
Featuring classical chants in Greek primarily by Petros Peloponnesios (1730–1778). Adaptations into Arabic primarily by Mitri El Murr (1880–1969) and those into English by John Michael Boyer (b. 1978) closely echo the originals in form, style, and grace.
This debut release by PRÓTO presents traditional chants for the Byzantine celebration of Christmas, including selections from The Royal Hours, Vespers, Matins, and the Divine Liturgy. A deluxe 32-page booklet is included with full texts in Greek, Arabic, and English.”
