Easter Chants



This unique CD presents a collection of Russian Orthodoxy chants, which were written for the forty days before Easter Sunday, and provides a flavor of the traditional Russian Orthodox service, which was almost entirely sung. The purpose of each of the nine chants is to remind the worshipers of Jesus’s teaching (‘Our Father’), to explore the themes of sin and repentance (‘Kontaktion to the Great Canon’), or to venerate the Virgin Mary (‘Akathist’). These beautiful and stirring chants are sung by the Benedictine Monks from the Union. Total Time: 47 minutes
