The Cherubic Hymn—and other songs sung during the Great Entrance—by the new group "Cherubika."
Includes eleven songs, including some seldom-heard selections of the Cherubic Hymn, as well as "Now the Powers, "Of Thy Mystical Supper," and "Let All Mortal Flesh"—which are sung during the Great Entrance at certain Holy Week services. The CD features traditional Orthodox chant from Russia (Znamenny and Valaam chant), Bulgaria, Georgia, Serbian, and Romania. Good liner notes in English include the hymn text, and contain information on the historical development of each melody.
Cherubika is an ensemble of Orthodox singers in Northern California specializing in znamenny and chant-based liturgical music in the Russian genre.
