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

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.
