The three-CD album Golden Orthodox 3CD contains the most famous Orthodox Church songs performed in various liturgical periods. On the first album we can hear the Choir of the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul in Minsk under the direction of nun Irina Denisowa (Nun Juliania), presenting classical traditional compositions in the conductor's arrangements. Nun Juliania is the preceptor of the Festive Choir of St Elisabeth Convent, the author of over 170 church chants, harmonisations and treatments. Her choir in its long activity has collected countless awards in many prestigious Orthodox Church-related festivals.
The second album is a collection of selected works from various publications of the Warsaw Orthodox Church Music Ensemble under the direction of priest Jerzy Szurbak. This group exists for over 40 years - its origins date back to September 1971. Orthodox Church music at hand of priest Szurbak became a real breath of spirit, touching the hearts of listeners overcomes divisions and connects people of different faiths and nationalities in prayer. The band's chronicle has more than 1,600 concerts, as well as many radio, television and film recordings.
The third album contains an extremely interesting Canon of Prayer to the Holy Mother of God, performed on the eve of August 15th - Dormition of the Mother of God. It is performed by the 'Jedinstvo' Choir, Kotor (Montenegro) under the direction of deacon Mihajlo Lazarevic. The Serbian Choral Society ‘Jedinstvo’ was officially established in 1839, although, many sources show, that the band from Kotor was formed much earlier, around 1830. The main goal of the ‘Jedinstvo’ Society is to work for culture, tradition and education. ‘Jedinstvo’ has a rich music library, specializing in church and artistic singing. ‘Jedinstvo’ is a laureate of many awards and distinctions, among others: the Star of the South Slavic Choir Society (1939) and the first place of the Belgrade Choir Society (1897, 1927). The choir has had many successful tours in Serbia, Croatia, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Greece and many more.
