ImageJournal.org’s Image Update features a great new review of Cappella Romana’s new compilation Angelic Light: Music from Eastern Cathedrals. Read an expert of the review right here, and then find the link to the full review on ImageJournal.org:

“…The great news is that our local musical gem is recording music that can be heard anywhere in the world. Angelic Light: Music from Eastern Cathedrals is something of a sampler CD: the tracks are taken from a series of albums that Cappella Romana has been releasing in recent years (twelve in all since 2000)… Other pieces come directly from Orthodox liturgical services, such as communion verses and hymns to the Virgin Mary. It is fascinating to compare the four different versions on this album of the Cherubic hymn from the Byzantine Eucharist’s ordinary Great Entrance chant. “We who mystically represent the Cherubim, and who sing the thrice-holy hymn to the life-giving Trinity…let us lay aside every care of this life so that we may receive the King of all….” Break down your inhibitions and get Angelic Light: you’ll soon want to obtain other albums by Cappella Romana.” — Image Update
