Tikey Zes (b.1927): The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom for choir and organ / Cappella Romana

Album Summary

>Zes, Tikey : The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, for chorus & organ
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Divine Liturgy is the principal Eucharistic service in the Orthodox Church, somewhat analogous to the Roman Catholic Mass. Dr. Tikey Zes (b. 1927) is the most prolific composer of Greek Orthodox liturgical music in America. This highly original choral setting of the Liturgy, which Zes dedicated to Cappella Romana, bears the marks of a composer long engaged with the traditions of Orthodox worship. Cumulatively opulent in its variety, level of musical difficulty, and ecstatic polyphonic climaxes, this Liturgy achieves a balance of splendor with restraint that is, its acculturated musical idiom notwithstanding, thoroughly Byzantine.

Gramophone
Music of purity and radiance.

Washington Post
Robust and intriguing music.
