Cappella Romana – Live in Greece

Cappella Romana, our favourite modern Byzantine musicians are a Portland, Oregon choir that specializes in Eastern Orthodox music. This week they have released their latest recording: “Live in Greece.” The album shows off the choir’s strengths in music old and new. Ancient Byzantine chants from the time of the Crusaders precede Greek and Latin polyphony from Renaissance Crete. The choir then moves to Los Angeles for Greek-American music and ends with “Radiant Cloud,” described as “a sonic icon of the Transfiguration by Athenian composer Michael Adamis.”

Under the direction of Alexander Lingas, Cappella Romana travels widely to Europe, New York and up and down the West Coast, and regularly makes recordings.
