While recently watching a video on Byzantine Music, which is linked above, I was really struck by the beauty of a certain hymn, called "Ton Theos Megas". Does anyone know of a recording of this hymn that is available online? The words are: "What God is as great as our God? You are the God who does wonders." If you want to hear it, click on the above link and skip to 7:57.

Well, if you're going to ask about it, the title is "Tis Theos Megas" not "Ton Theos."  I'm not sure of any recordings yet, but I would tell you to search for files associated with the day after a major feast, or during an ordination, as it will be chanted around those times.

Ah, thank you. I made sure I knew how to spell it before I posted, but for some reason I got it wrong. Thank you Cleveland, mea culpa!

Very nice recording.  I always get chills when we sing this during Great Lent and on Triumph of Orthodoxy Sunday.

It is a good recording - close to what I'm used to.

I was looking through some old files today and stumbled across this: 
Play track number 9
http://magnatune.com/artists/albums/sreteniye-rachael/

That sounds much more of the style I'm use to from Mt. Athos, to me that previously linked file sounds too overdone.
