This Work will take you out of this world. Wonderful music, heavenly and meditative. This is a part of three volumes (9 discs) which were composed not just hundreds of years ago, but more than 2000 years in the past. This work consist of equal parts ancient Greek music ,early European classical music, Christian chants, and Middle Eastern music. Apparently, many of the compositions were found preserved in manuscripts stored away in old monasteries. Great care was taken in selecting authentic instruments that would have been used by the musicians who originally performed this material centuries ago. Such instruments include Byzantine lutes (similar to ouds), Byzantine psalters (harps similar to kanuns), tambouras, fandouroses, kemanes, lyras, and Byzantine violas.
