Chants from (Old) Valaam Monastery - CD
Selected hymns in Slavonic from the services of the Church in the style of Znammeny chant sometimes known as "Old Valaam", similar in character to ancient Byzantine chant. An uncommonly beautiful recording, lacking entirely the operatic character of so much later chant. A substantial portion of the cost of the disk goes toward restoration of Old Valaam monastery. Compact Disc.
