Downloads: Be Patient!
Our MP3 downloads are encoded at 320 kbps, the highest quality permitted by the MP3 format. Why does this matter to you? Because you're buying liturgical music, not rock and roll, and so compression and sampling rates matter to minimize loss and degradation of sound fidelity.

Original CDs are encoded at 1,020 kilobits/sec, and most download stores sell files at 128 kbs-one tenth the quality of the original. Higher sampling rates make for bigger files and longer download times, but the higher quality is well worth it-you'll hear the difference!

Title:  Liturgica.com Review
Rating:
Review:   Georgian chant has a history that reaches back to the earliest Christian times--Georgia being the first country to accept Christianity. Georgian Christianity has a rich history of liturgical worship and theology, and developed it's own specific chant form. Georgian music has a haunting, piercing sound. Its liturgical music offers an Orthodox musical tradition that escapes the polarity between Byzantine chant as preserved in the Greek tradition, the traditional Znamenny chant of Russia and various "westernized" forms of relatively recent introduction into Orthodoxy (e.g., Obikhod). Georgian liturgical music is, fascintingly, trinitarian in its structure: it has a three-part structure different than than the one part (with ison) of Byzantine and Znamenny chant or the westernized four part harmonies of post-Petrine Russia. This recording, will introduce the western listener to a hauntingly beautiful and mystical polyphonic chant form. The Georgian Harmony Choir performs exquisitely, with a counterpoint of male and female voices seldom heard in Eastern Orthodox liturgical chant. For instance, the counterpoint in the Cherubic hymn is exquisite, while the whole hymn is perfomred with a softness and sensitivity that makes you think of a feather floating in the air; certainly a musical feeling appropriate to the lyric ""that we may receive the King of All."" Many hymns aren't recognizable to the traditional Byzantine ear--for instance, the Troprion of the Cross. On the other hand, the Trisagion Hymn, like the Cherubic Hymn, is recognizable by the shared theological content presented in its liturgical expression. This is a delightful and edifying recording, and one that will broaden your appreciation of the range and beauty of Christian chant."
