Russian Orthodox Lenten Chant


I thought some of you may like to explore the beautiful Russian Orthodox Chants. Here is one Russian chant for the Lenten period.
Title: “На реках Вавилонских” (By the waters of Babylon). Performers: Moscow Sretensky Monastery Choir

And here is some of the incredible architecture and artwork as well as chant to be found in the Orthodox Church. Again I have chosen the Russian Orthodox tradition, as it is so beautiful and haunting; appealing to all the senses in the worship of God and is perhaps lesser known to many Western Christians of Catholic and Protestant traditions. In such beauty the spirit soars.
