Και κλήρονομον δείξον με, ζωής της αιωνίου

The well-known chant ensemble Capella Romana will hold a concert in Tillamook, Oregon. The show is scheduled for next Tuesday.

From the article:
Many people are familiar with Gregorian chant, but there is an older form of singing praises and hymns to God from the Orthodox tradition known as Byzantine chant, dating as far back as the 5th century. This is the genre for which Cappella Romana is recognized as "The world's preeminent early-music vocal group," (Portland Monthly Magazine). The Wall Street Journal exclaimed, "Byzantium lives on . . . thanks to Cappella Romana."

Fran Lebowitz: Everything. There is not one thing with which I am satisfied.

What would it take to bring these guys to the midwest?  They're awesome.

They'll be in Medford, OR on the 18th.  I can't wait to see them.  I used to sing with a couple of the members when I lived in Portland.
