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.

These new CDs are not being introduced as a simple addition to the consumer market, as they were produced with the consciousness that authentic Byzantine melody is not music intended for popular consumption, nor can it become an object of commercialization. On the contrary, Byzantine music belongs to the realm of transcendence. It is word [logos] in musical form, the word of revelation and disclosure of truth and the experience of the Church that is not related to the provocation of the senses, emotion, pleasure, or delight. The beauty, therefore, of Byzantine music does not have an aesthetic basis, but rather an ontological one, which imprints and defines this beauty in both an iconic and Eucharistic fashion in the Divine Services.

Byzantine Ecocriticism: Women, Nature, and Power in the Medieval Greek Romance (The New Middle Ages)

Byzantine Ecocriticism: Women, Nature, and Power in the Medieval Greek Romance (The New Middle Ages) by Adam J. Goldwyn
English | 31 Dec. 2017 | ISBN: 331969202X | 240 Pages | PDF | 3.03 MB

Byzantine Ecocriticism: Women, Nature, and Power in the Medieval Greek Romance applies literary ecocriticism to the imaginative fiction of the Greek world from the twelfth to fifteenth centuries. Through analyses of hunting, gardening, bride-stealing, and warfare, Byzantine Ecocriticism exposes the attitudes and behaviors that justified human control over women, nature, and animals; the means by which such control was exerted; and the anxieties surrounding its limits. Adam Goldwyn thus demonstrates the ways in which intersectional ecocriticism, feminism, and posthumanism can be applied to medieval texts, and illustrates how the legacies of medieval and Byzantine environmental practice and ideology continue to be relevant to contemporary ecological and environmental concerns.

This album is dedicated to the Old Russian professional chant culture, and to those cultures which it was connected with — such as Byzantine, Serbian and Bulgarian. This is the first recording of such a wide cycle of Old Russian chants made in this country. "Madrigal" ensemble introducing chant culture of the Russian 17th century payed much attention to a little known but interesting and artistically valuable direction — partesny and demestveny Chants.
