SUMMARY

A musical journey from the Byzantine Empire, with stops at different moments in time: from Syria, when the first Christians in the East sang their songs, to Constantinople, for its Phanariot Greek hymns and chants, as well as its classical Ottoman songs. A wonderful voyage in sound through these neighbouring regions that have given rise to musical traditions as rich as they are varied.
