Byzantine Chant is a vine heavy-laden with the fruits of illumination, deeply rooted in the traditions of biblical liturgical worship, and heeds St. Paul's injunction to exhort one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs (Eph. 5:19). This collection of Byzantine hymnography in English may come as a revelation to Orthodox and non-Orthodox alike. To the former, that the traditional tones and hymns can be rendered in the English language without a diminution of form and essence, and to the latter, that this tradition of sacred music need not be inaccessible to western listeners.
