“Music is a powerful tool for expressing oneself, and becomes majestically beautiful when used as a prayerful expression to the Creator. Byzantine Ecclesiastical music is just that. When people chant together in prayer before God, they are expressing a divine unity not only with those around them, but also with those of previous generations who partook in the handing down of this tradition.” – Basilios Psilacos

Reviews: “…it is an essential textbook for English speaking students of Byzantine chant or Byzantine music enthusiasts.
