This recording is the first for the Choir of St Geore Orthodox Cathedral in Pittsburgh, PA, and is a very good first production. The selection of hymnology from the Nativity and Theophany seasons is a mix of familiar and not--though those not so familiar still happen to be beautiful and perfectly relevant examples. The cross section of hymns is well chosen, and the inclusion of hymns such as the "Polyeloes" and the "Megalynaria form the Advent Paraklesis" are particularly joyous. This is a recording of a live performance, and while good overall, does have a couple of hymns that are short of perfect--just the kind of thing to be expected in a live service or concert! The recording and engineering are very good, and the overall effect is quite uplifting.
