Alexander Lingas’s Cappella Romana Playlist: The Akáthistos & Great Lent

Although the Coronavirus crisis is temporarily preventing our wonderful artists from gathering to sing for you, I will be creating a series of playlists featuring music taken not only from Cappella Romana’s commercially released CDs, but also from our archive of live recordings.

This, my first playlist, features selections from two services of the Byzantine tradition of worship for the penitential season of Great Lent.

Thanks to the generous support of people like you, we will soon be broadcasting livestreams of past concerts, as well as releasing new resources for Byzantine chanting in English from Cappella Romana’s Associate Director, Protopsaltis John Michael Boyer.

Best wishes,


Alexander Lingas, Ph.D.
