. . . a fascinating collection of ancient Christian liturgies, from Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Abyssinian, Greek Catholic, Armenian, Coptic, ancient Syrian and Maronite traditions. The result is a unique album of chants . . . if you are adventurous in your listening, might I suggest the Arabic Maronite setting of Psalm 42, irresistibly sung by Cantor Etienne Khuri from the Lebanon. I found it most uplifting.

Dieses musikethnographische Dokument war schon zu jener Zeit . . . bemerkenswert und hat auch als CD-Wiederver÷ffentlichung . . . an Bedeutung nichts verloren.
