Playlist update

Just a quick note to let you know that I have added some new chants to my playlist; they are Eastern Rite. "The Resurrection" has bells accompanying it, and makes me think of walking through a little European village in the evening.

Ah, sacred music. You speaketh my language:0)

The bells seem somber, and I love the cantor's solo voice accompanied by them. When the choir comes along, those note progression are mesmerizing.

A few years ago I was deeply disappointed with the Russian Orthodox Church. I don't know if you ever got word of it, but it turns out they wanted special legal rights in which other religions - namely the Catholic faith - would be prevented from converting others. Apparently, the Russian Orthodox were afraid of losing members to the Catholic Church. I'm not sure what the status of that law is, but I found it tragically ironic how the suppressive specter of the former Soviet Union should be resuscitated in a Church that suffered great violence - just like the Catholic Church did - at the hands of the communists.
