Thanks for posting, but please don't credit the music as being 'Byzantine Catholic hymns' as they are part of the shared heritage of both the Greek Catholics and the Orthodox of eastern Slovakia and Transcarpathia - and the slavic Orthodox as a whole. The Orthodox Choir of St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Presov has released several beautiful CD's with many of the same selections. I am sure you meant no offense by your reference, but it is an important point to keep in mind. (The recordings of the Seminarians from the Presov Academy are excellent although I don't have a link to obtain them.)
By the way, I wish the European Orthodox would do more on the internet. The Russian Orthodox Church uses it effectively with beautiful videos and recordings.
Yes, I had no intent to offend! (It seems no matter what you say here, someone is bound to be offended, to be honest ) It's so hard to find recordings of this music from the Ruthenian/Slovakian tradition. I specifically didn't put it under Liturgy because it was a Byzantine Catholic website and there are links from this site that give the Byzantine Catholic viewpoint of the history of the church. I hope that point is taken.
The moderator had posted a suggestion of topics for this forum, such as comparing monastic and liturgical traditions.
With all the squabbling that goes on in this forum, sometimes it's nice to take a breath and listen to this beautiful music, regardless if it is sung by Byzantine Catholics or Eastern Orthodox.
