Soma Christou Virtual Choir
Here is the Greek-American answer to Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir, presenting the Communion Verse for Pascha (Easter) sung by members of Greek Orthodox church choirs from around the country, “virtually conducted” by the composer of this setting, Dr. Tikey Zes. Cappella Romana has long been a champion of Dr. Zes’ work, including his 1991 Divine Liturgy that Cappella Romana recorded and released this year.
Dr. Zes’ 1952 composition on the communion verse of Pascha is sung today by nearly every parish in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.
Receive the Body of Christ; taste from the immortal fount. Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.
Σῶμα Χριστοῦ μεταλάβετε, πηγῆς ἀθανάτου γεύσασθε. Ἀλληλούϊα, Ἀλληλούϊα, Ἀλληλούϊα.
