Both the original plainchant and the Hanelle troped antiphons are presented in a series of nine pairs, between which the ensemble also performs an appropriate and context-defining selection of Maronite and Byzantine chants.
The Belgian ensemble, as always directed by Björn Schmelzer, performs these pieces, marked by a moving beauty, with one female and eight male singers, producing another of their peculiar and intriguing soundscapes.
These Cypriot Vespers come with an interview with Björn Schmelzer carried out by Anne-Kathryn Olsen, a selection of late-19th-century photographs taken in Cyprus by John Thomson, and the first English translation of the antiphons, made by scholar Jeannine De Landtsheer from the University of Leuven.
