The cover of this CD says that the singing is 'Uplifting and Spiritual Voices'. This is a CD that can be played quietly in the background, or listened to carefully to soothe the spirit. It is good Orthordox Christian chanting a cappella, with a beatiful resonance, no doubt due to the monastery chapel. I really like it. This is my first CD to have female voices singing spiritual music in this way, and it is a nice change from hearing monks singing Gregorian chants. A really good buy.
