ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A Byzantine Christmas Carol is a collection of hymns from the tradition of the Orthodox Christian Church, sung in the traditional style of Byzantine Chant. The hymns are taken from the various services associated with the feasts of the Nativity of Christ and the Theophany of Christ, and are sung in English. The hymns meditate both on the themes of the feasts and on our relationship to the feasts and to God as humans of the "modern" world. The hymns delve into the Eastern Christian understanding of salvation as one of synergy with God, realizing itself in our own embodiment of the feasts, incarnating within ourselves the Word of God, and allowing God to be manifested in our lives such that our heavenly Father may look down upon us as well and say "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
