The Supplicatory Canon to the Virgin Mary, by Petros Gaitanos

Last month a new cd with Byzantine Music was released in Greece, by the famous singer and chanter Petros Gaitanos. This cd has hymns from the Supplicatory Canon to the Virgin Mary, which is one of the most famous services within the Orthodox Church, dedicated to the Mother of God, the Theotokos, showing her significance for the Church and for the salvific plan of God for His Creation.

Any CD dedicated to a Service or a Saint is of course important. However, the reason for dedicating this post on Londinoupolis is due to a more personal relation towards this new project. One of the choir members is my good friend Alexios Nestouris, who is a great chanter and who has studied Theology (BD and MA) at the University of Athens, School of Theology. He is currently a chanter in the Athens area.
For those who wish to listen to a part of the cd, please see the following YouTube video:
