Title: Cappella Romana - Lay Aside All Earthy Cares
Post by: DennyB on April 10, 2006, 10:18:46 PM
I have just recently heard this CD,and I must say this will change the face of Orthodoxy in America,I love Orthodox Music,but never found much of it in English,The Harmony is fabulous and the Acoustics of the Recording Venue were marvelously preserved.Below is a link to one of the Tracks.

I have listened to samples of other tracks,and I plan on purchasing this CD

The Great Doxology (http://www.musicarussica.com/multimedia/clips/I-63_Trk006.mp3)

It is a Real Audio File.

Hey thanks for the kind words!

We had a blast making that CD!

Father Sergei was present during the recording sessions and was a rock of inspiration.
I am very fond of the recording and am glad you like it.

Do they not list the members?  I've sung with John Boyer on several occasions but don't know anyone else.

You harmonize and blend very well,I have listened to Robert Shaw's Festival Singers,and they don't even come close to the sound you have achieved!

I believe the personnel are listed on the CD.

John Boyer Jr. is amazing...I believe he had other commitments during the Glagolev recording.

Although the composition of the group varies somewhat due to schedules and life in general, many of us have sung together in Cappella for a number of years now and it is bearing fruit. =)
