The new "Cherubika" Ensemble has produced a CD with a very interesting concept -- eleven settings of various Cherubic Hymns -- the usual text from the Divine Liturgy, as well as the three other texts that function as Cherubika: "Now the Powers of Heaven," from the Liturgy of the Pre-sanctified Gifts, "Of Thy Mystical Supper," from the Liturgy of Great and Holy Thursday, and "Let All Mortal Flesh," from the Liturgy of Great and Holy Saturday. All the settings are in English, drawn from a variety of chant sources -- Russian Znamenny, Georgian, Serbian, and Romanian, and represent arrangements and adaptations made by various Orthodox composers working in America today in the sphere of chant, chief among them, Fr. Lawrence Margitich, the principal conductor of the ensemble. The 15-voice group is comprised of select voices, who sing with good ensemble and blend -- a welcome development in the sphere of American Orthodox recordings. Coupled with an introductory essay by Orthodox musicologist Dimitri Conomos, this CD offers not only a highly enjoyable and reverent listening experience but also an excellent teaching tool, demonstrating what fine liturgical singing, drawn upon the well-spring of the Orthodox chant heritage, can and should be. --V.M.
