In the tradition of the Slavic Eastern Orthodox and Byzantine Catholic Churches, composer Roman Hurko's works of sacred choral music are original settings of The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, as well as Vespers and the Panachyda Requiem. Mr. Hurko's work is faithful to these profound and centuries old Byzantine rite texts. The directness and simplicity of his byzantine rite sacred music gives prominence to the prayers.
Roman Hurko is pleased to announce the CD release of his recent English Language setting of The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. Recorded in Chicago (February 2011) with Schola Cantorum of St. Peter The Apostle and guest artists, conductor Michael J. Thompson. You can find it on iTunes here.
