From Constantinople to California

From Constantinople to California: Greek and Greek-American Choral Works

Follow a 1000-year journey of Byzantine music, from medieval Constantinople to the Greek communities of California. Infused with 19th-century Italian, Russian, and Viennese choral traditions, the musical seeds carried by Greek immigrants to the New World blossomed in the next generation with soaring Renaissance style and Hollywood flair.
