Links for Georgian chant
« on: November 24, 2010, 11:37:17 PM »

But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."
Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D'Urbervilles

This website has some great resources and audio samples. They offer guided tours of Georgian monasteries and medieval sites, as well as the musical styles of various regions.

Christ is risen. One of my favourites. This style of chant is from the Svaneti region.
