Indeed, TruthSeeker, she is good.

The first sample on this page:

brings me to my knees quite literally.

Being a Copt, it is strange to my ears to hear a female vocal soloist (my Church is dominated by strong male vocals - maybe an influence of Egypt's arabization), however that was truly quite beautiful. Those samples linked to by Αριστοκλής were also quite moving; i've never heard EO chant before, thanks for sharing that.

For me, most of the Coptic Good Friday hymns move and humble my spirit; most notably however:

Golgotha (this version is recorded with an instrumental, however this hymn is not accompanied by instruments when chanted on Good Friday):
http://tasbeha.org/media/index.php?s=Songs%2FCoptic%2FDavid_Ensmble%2FCoptic_Hymns%2Ftrack_02.mp3

The chant of Chapter 3 from the Lamentations of Jeremiah: http://media.coptichymns.net:8080/ramgen/coptichymns/pascha/friday/hics/lamentations_fmnm.smil

Psalm of Sixth Hour (Rafadoni ana al-habib - "They rejected I the beloved") Psalms 38:21,22;22:16,17,18,7,8:
http://tasbeha.org/media/index.php?s=Hymns%2FOther_Occasions%2FHoly_Week%2FElshahid_Abu_Fam%2Fcd2%2Ftrack1.mp3

The Trisagion (sad tune):

Her voice is beautiful.

I am a "fan" of Sister Keyrouz. If any of you have heard her, she is Melkite/Maronite, but she sings beautiful EO Liturgies and hymns.
You can listen to her here.

Listen to the Cherubic Hymn (3rd down on that page).  My priest bought a record that has it when he was in Greece 20+ years ago.  He transcribed and translated it and it is in our choir books.

On page 2 of that site there is another Cherubic Hymn which seems like a really nice blend of polyphonic (more Slavic) and monophonic (Byzantine) chant.  A lot of this Serb stuff is really interesting.

Lucky last on my list has to be the Priest-Deacon "Khristos Anesti" dialogue. The first part of the chant in the file at the below link is performed in english, and the latter majority in arabic; here are the lyrics:

Deacon (in English): Christ is Risen from the dead.
Priest (in English): Indeed He is Risen from the dead.
Deacon (in Arabic): Lift up your heads, O you gates, and be lifted up you everlasting doors! (x3) And the King of Glory shall come in.
Priest (in Arabic): Who is the King of Glory?
Deacon (in Arabic): The Lord, Strong and Mighty. The Lord Mighty in battle! He is the King of Glory...

I'd also suggest ensemble settings, male, female, or mixed, because there are some amazing ancient traditions to be found there.

He is pretty good but doesn't quite match her....although I am buying some of his works.
