Great Hours

Andreas Katsigiannis employs his knowledge of Byzantine and Western music to compose a musical world that's uniquely his own. A solemn prayer that recalls the wind whistling beneath Mount Athos' sacred canopy will be heard under the Attic sky, at the Herodeion, performed by Glykeria, Dimitris Basis, Eleanna Varela and the five-time Emmy award-winning American musician and actor Jonathan Jackson, along with 100 chorister from three different choirs. The narrator is the great Nikitas Tsakiroglou. The Athens State Orchestra is conducted by Stathis Soulis.
