Post by: LoveJoyPeace on February 15, 2018, 04:43:53 PM
Does anyone know of spiritual songs/devotionals that are Orthodox, but are not necessarily Chant/Liturgical?  :)

There is an album by the Saint Elisabeth Convent (Minsk, Belarus) called "Songs of the Russian Pilgrims" which collects a lot of Russian devotional songs. The album Putnik by Ensemble Sirine also has some.

A nun-disciple of Gerondissa Gabriella makes nice non-liturgical songs that I enjoy, but they are all in Greek.

Stamatis Spanoudakis has composed a lot of non-liturgical Orthodox music, with and without vocals, as well as re-set liturgical hymns. These works get a lot of airplay on Greek church radio:
