I Like It

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Not being Armenian, I can't vouch for the authenticity of the performance, but it strikes me as being the real thing. The music is mostly subdued with occasional sections of emotional exuberance. Since most of the work is fairly dark, I wouldn't recommend this to those who have immature tastes in music or are looking for some more of that "purty Russian music". I would recommend it, without hesitation, to those who enjoy Eastern Orthodox music and aren't hung up on the purty Russian music stereotype. I think a good test of whether or not this is for you is: If you think the "music" of Jackson Berkey is pure slop then you stand a good chance of liking this recording. The all male choir is not a spit and polish professional group, but they are directed well, do a good job, and convey genuine feeling in their performance. The solo work is quite good. Good listening for your melancholy days."
Disgracefully Underated

"This is a flawless rendition of the eternally famous Komitas Liturgy by an unsurpassed choir. A Cappela renditions of Armenian Church music like this are hard to find, since miserably, organs have been often introduced. That makes this doubly precious. It rates TEN stars! How could you give it two? Must be an error."
Beautifully Moving Music

"I just bought this CD and am impressed by its beauty and grace. This choir chants the lovely hymns of the Armenian Liturgy in deep, rich, and resonant voices. Yes, the music is often dark and sad, but that is part of the journey from penitence to celebration.

If you enjoy sacred Russian or Eastern music (or even Early Byzantine Music), you will love this."
