Wonderful Insights into Music of the Armenian Church
Thank you, NAREK Bell Choir, for presenting sacred music of the Armenian church to a wider audience. This is an especially interesting disc, as it surveys portions of the liturgy as realized by 8 different composers, both historical and modern. Thank you!
