The Byzantine Music of George Lambropoulos

I found this site the other day and was impressed by George’s singing. You may enjoy it as well.  His MySpace site says this about him:

George Lambropoulos was born on 1936 in Athens. Singing as a first singer for 55 years now, is one of the great masters and executors of byzantine music. He is considered one of the greatest byzantine singers with gifted emotional voice, following the traditional form and style of the Patriarchic church of Konstantinoupolis (Instabul). He has been invited to sing to orthodox churches all over Greece, Europe, United States and Middle East countries. He has also given many recitals of byzantine music around the world as a chorarch and as a soloist with his own choir. With his voice ability, apart of byzantine music, he has also been a main soloist to 5 oratoriums with orchestra and choir of 300 people. Today he is still singing in a cathedral church of Athens. For many friends and lovers of this music all around the world, he was and still is, “The Nightingale of Byzantine Music”
