Premiere Liturgical CD by nazo zakkak

A collection of original hymns for the Orthodox Church, Luxari bears influences of traditional Byzantine, Russian, and Romanian music and lovingly crafts them into a new and enticing American sound. Composed by nazo zakkak, the CD is his first of original liturgical music, as he seeks to develop an authentic musical expression of the Church’s prayer in this time and place. All the hymns on this album are appropriate for Liturgical use within the Orthodox faith, as many were commissioned by parishes and monasteries, yet shine in a concert setting. The Adelfos Ensemble performs the works.

"I am delighted to welcome into the world this wonderful new recording of Orthodox choral music by Nazo Zakkak—Luxari. Nazo has managed, once again, to compose music that is fresh, enticing, and pious at its spiritual and creative core."
Peter Jermihov, Conductor, Founder and Artistic Director
