Medieval Orthodox and Catholic chant.

Vocal Ensemble Psaltikon presents a dialogue between the Eastern and Western Churches. Byzantine chant had a considerable influence particularly on the Ambrosian chant of Milan. On the other side of the continent, the three-voice traditional polyphony of Georgia is thought to be a relic echoing early Medieval European polyphony. The rich musical tradition of the Christian world in the Middle Ages extends from virtuoso melismas to archaic harmonies.

Duration 45 MIN. No interval.
