Extraordinary music and performance 28 April 2000
By "mike1964" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album deserves to be better known - I wish that samples of the first few tracks were available here. Musically speaking this is a find at least as exciting as the albums of Meso-American music produced by SAVAE with all the emotional and visceral resonance of Rachmaninov's Vespers.

Mystical vocals, classical and simple, direct and honest. Different than any other world music I have. I loved it.

Hauntingly Beautiful 31 Aug. 2010
By Dr. Debra Jan Bibel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There is melancholy and a depth of passion in Armenian music, be it folk music or, here, in music of the church. David Parsons and Celestial Harmonies have given us remarkable series of world music: Vietnam, Cambodia, and the spectrum of music within Islam. These recordings from Armenia are even more outstanding. From the first notes of the first track you are hooked. This religious music from the middle ages to the 20th century is entirely different from the Gregorian and Latin forms of the West. Melodies are drawn out as if the singer and listener need to savor each note and gentle instrumental accent and emphasis. Gorecki's Symphony #3 has the same spirit and sound. Three forms of chant are presented: the liturgical sharakan, the more secular tagh, and the series of long litanies of the gandz. The Sharakan Early Music Ensemble provide the instrumental support and guest vocalists Anna Mailian and Ara Avantain tug at our heart. In 301 A.D., Armenia was the first nation to adopt Christianity; its liturgical music has deep roots. This is music of meditation and contemplation.

By the Grace of God there is such music 28 Jun. 2000
By "avantart" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I met Anna Mayilian, the soprano singer of this CD last year in Armenia and by her singing God comes closer to us...
This Sharakan has a very great strength and grace
if you want to know more about Anna Mayilian, there will be even more information in the future
I really recommend this CD to you, it will lighten your soul!
Quite Good, But Not For Me 18 Feb. 2013
By S. E. Bradfield - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Once again I purchased an album of medieval music unheard, hoping that since the songs were written hundreds of years go I would be listening to a recreation, and once again I was disappointed. Don't get me wrong, this is a great album. My only problem with it is that it is a modern recording of modern choirs singing music that happens to have been written long ago. I enjoy hearing music by composers I'm unfamiliar with, and the material here is worth having. I just didn't plan on hearing modern renditions of that music, with modern polyphany. The songs are very old, but the music is definitely 20th/21st century.

It's good, but not what I like hear. My fault, not theirs.
