Orthodox choral music for Pascha (Easter!)
Hey folks,

I'm not sure how many people here have been exposed to the Orthodox Christian worship tradition, but for anyone who is interested I found a really good English-speaking church choir that recorded some of the best parts of Holy Week and the Triduum (the three days of Great Friday ('Good Friday', as it's called in the West), Holy Saturday, and Pascha Sunday).

In particular, listen to "Let God Arise", the Canon of Holy Saturday, and the Paschal Canon. The Lamentations are also cool - they're basically a series of short hymn verses lamenting the death of Jesus interspersed with the verses of Psalm 119.

(Also, it's worth noting that this particular musical tradition is very characteristic of the Slavic (Russian, mostly, as well as Ukrainian) churches)

That particular music is my favorite arrangement of "Let God Arise."
