God is With Us

In English (!). Good starter CD for those who don't have much exposure to Orthodox liturgical music.
You may find Orthodox liturgical music to be unlike anything you've heard before, perhaps especially when sung by would-be priests like these. To quote one of my friends who heard one of the octets in this seminary (St. Vladimir's, Crestwood, NY) sing in person, it's like being in another world.
