Well, it took me about 2-3 years of searching to finally find pre-schism Western European Orthodox chant. 
Of course, Latin wasn't that hard to find, but French, English, Irish, Scottish, etc. were almost impossible to locate. 

By the grace of God, I ended up contacting a French Orthodox bishop who graciously sent me two discs of exactly what I had been looking for:
pre-schism Western European Orthodox chant.  These two discs are the source for the following OrthodoxMysteries culture pages:

French
English
Scottish
Irish
Iberian
