The songs are traditional songs in Greek (Greek mixed with Turkish) arranged by Vangellis, and most of them talk about the Ottoman times in Greece. I was a child when I got the album, it got popular here, specially the song "The River" which was the theme of a movie (do you remember what movie?
She also sings the Hristos Anesti, both in Greek and Turkish I think, and other modified Orthodox hymns.
