I am interested in buying some CD's of Russian Chant that will be comparable with Gregorian Chant, I've heard some beautiful example's of it at Serges's site but cannot find it else where.

Suggestions ?

Those who ignore history tend to repeat it.

I think the Valaam Monastery has a CD where they sing using the Russian Chant and its in English!  Check the Conciliar Press website www.conciliarpress.com

Also, I don't know where you live, but Tower records here where I live has some beautiful Othodox CD's.  Check for some of the CD's done by Bulgarian male choirs for Russian type chant.

Check out the following linx:

http://artists.mp3s.com/artists/364/anthology.html
http://www.cdstreet.com/cgi-bin/artisthome_db.cgi?1237403

They have collections of all sorts of eastern european liturgical chant, from  more contemporary westernized music to more ancient types.  I would recommend the "Hymns of the All-Night Vigil" by the K'yiv Theological Academy, and anything by the Chamber Choir K'yiv.  Mostly all sung in church Slavonic,and truly awe-inspiring.

If you aren't set on a Russian CD I'd recomend the new CD put our by Saint Anthony's Monastey.  You can listen to the Apolytikion of Saint Anthony the Great online and purchase the CD via the bookstore on thier webpage.  www.stanthonysmonastery.org

My list that I gave my wife includes the following selections:
> Chants from Valaam

> First Fruits - Byzantine Chant in English

> Best of Kyrygma


A diverse group of choices

Keep in mind Georgian chant if you come across it anywhere (Iberians, not State of). It is truly beautiful.

John,

I will note your request, in todays world in is very disturbing to not find examples of Orthodox worship in stores, they are cluttered with the typical Gospel, Evangelical and Christian pop music.

I like to kick back in my solitude room and listen to chant, maybe read some scripture or what ever the Spirit promps.

Best Russian chant site I've found is here:

http://www.orthodoxmusic.ru

The site is in both English & Russian.  You have to order from Russia, but the CDs are quality.  Quality of performance, production, packaging, etc.  Even with shipping from Russia, a single CD typically runs about US $12.

Their staff is courteous and very helpful.  They can help you navigate international buying.  If anybody is interested, PM me or respond back here and I can give you a few pointers about how to speed things along with them when ordering.  Their English isn't too good, but it is sufficient.  They ship very quickly.  I ordered 7 CDs and received them in two weeks.
