Notes & Reviews:

The Feast of the Dormition of our Most Holy Lady is celebrated on August 15. Most of the hymns on this recording are traditional, but there are also some lesser-known items adapted to the Finnish language and a few more recent Finnish compositions. Finnish Orthodox music is a relatively young tradition. To a growing degree, Greek-Byzantine elements have been assimilated direct into the Finnish practice and not via Russia. This recording imparts something of the 1,000- year tradition behind the hymns.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Much of this is cast in rather repetitive chant-sequences that may wear thin on the typical listener's ear if it is all taken in at one sitting. But that's the Orthodox way; just settle back into your easy chair, refuse to listen critically, and you will fall helplessly into the kind of meditative trance that this idiom fosters.

Sound quality is excellent; the spare booklet contains concise notes, but no texts.
