Good Friday in Jerusalem

group with CD Jerusalem-hires

Cappella Romana releases its 20th recording in conjunction with these performances of music for Good Friday in Jerusalem. Hear Medieval Byzantine chant, the fraternal repertoire to Latin chant in the West, composed for 8th and 9th-century celebrations of Holy Week in Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Hymns from the seventh to the ninth centuries by Jerusalem’s great church fathers—Patriarch Sophronios, Kosmas the Melodist, and Saint John Damascene—include the famous Orthodox hymn “Semeron krematai” (“Today He who is hung upon the tree”) sung to its original medieval melody.
