Cathedral Releases CD Recording of Liturgical Services.
Purchase yours ONLINE NOW!

The Cathedral is pleased to announce the release of a new CD of liturgical music sung at the divine services at the Cathedral throughout the church year.

"This is not a virtuosic performance of liturgical masterpieces, but rather a taste of what the divine services as heard and experienced at the Cathedral are like,"said Fr. Christopher Calin, the Cathedral's Dean. "If you love the Cathedral, you'll love this CD."

The CD consists of 38 (total running time: 68 Minutes) tracks sung by both a full choir and a quartet, which takes you through a liturgical day beginning with hymns of Vespers, followed by selections from Matins and ending with appointed hymns from the Holy Liturgy, and encompassing Great Lent and the great feasts of Pascha, Christmas, Dormition and the Cathedral's feast day of Holy Protection. Orthodox listeners will recognize most of the compositions, and hopefully be transported back to moments of deep prayer during the divine services which sanctify time throughout the church year.

This CD is a unique addition to the existing canon of parish recordings that are available, and wholly representative of the pan-Orthodox reality typified by many parishes of the Orthodox Church in America. Aside from the paschal troparion which is sung in Slavonic, Georgian, Romanian, Finnish and Greek, all hymns are sung in English. There are also some select hymns done in Byzantine chant.

"We are delighted to produce this CD, and hope that you will agree that it is a joy to listen to, a good evangelism tool, and useful in the ministry to those unable to attend divine services on a regular basis," said Fr. Christopher.

The Cathedral is grateful and indebted to Anthony Donovan, a neighbor, who encouraged them to consider making this recording, recorded the selections, and edited the CD himself. Without him, this CD could not have been produced.

This will make a great gift for your Orthodox, and even some non-Orthodox friends and family.
