Among the older Orthodox nations in the world is the Republic of Georgia. Their local traditions include many saints, wonderful churches, and some of the most hauntingly beautiful music anywhere in the Orthodox world. This is a small clip from a Georgian monastery. Enjoy.

    Wow. This is extremely beautiful. I’ve been listening to more Wicca chant lately, and was tiring of most Orthodox chant. But this… wow. Do you know of a place I can order a CD of this?

    Justin, why Wicca chant. It has no tradition (Wicca is a modern invention). Try Amazon or St. Vladimir’s Press – google Georgia Chant. Something will turn up.

    To Jasmine,
