Can anyone recommend some good CDs of Byzantine chant?  I prefer smaller groups/choirs (all-male), and nothing too echo-y.

Thanks!

Not too "echo-y"?  Then DON'T buy kelfar's cd.  Nothing wrong with "echo-y".

I recommend the CD from St Anthony's Monastery for English (called the Divine Liturgies Project); it sounds just like the Greek.

For Greek I enjoy Makris's Christmas CD but I don't know if it's small enough of a group for you.  One of the hymns from Makris's CD flows as a stream on the website ecclesiagoc.org; it starts out with a soloist intoning "ne-ah-nes" and then Doxa Patri, followed by a choir that comes in singing "oti Chairos".  If you like that you will like Makris's CDs, which are available from www.thehtm.org

I will try to think some other stuff today.

My personal preference is anything that the monks of Simonopetra do.  They have several CDs, one for Matins, one for Vespers, one for Liturgy and others dedicated to other special feasts and such.  I also have a recording of the monks of Vatopadi Monastery on Athos going through Matins for Pascha--quite good!

I know you are looking for a CD, but if you like free online chant, www.ieropsaltis.com is good.

For good byzantine chant in English, try Fr. Apostolos Hill, Eikona, or Boston Byzantine Choir.

As kelfar posted....cholmes, you must CHANGE your likeing.  Echo-y is good!  Dead sound = bad!

It is perhaps a bit more 'grand' that what you are asking for, but nonetheless, Lycourgos Angelopoulos' Greek Byzantine Choir's recording of the Divine Liturgy (Chrysostom) in Greek is a good recommendation; I am guessing it is not easy to find however.

I can recommend some CDs of Byzantine chant in Romanian, if you're interested (just let me know) and then there's always this site, if you want an online source:

Hope that helps,

Here you can listen to a live broadcast from a little Transylvanian village of  a Romanian liturgy, celebrated according to the Transylvanian use, with Transylvanian chant, followed by a Parastas/Panahida. Right now they are at the Cherubic Hymn.
