CD-17 Armenian Chants

Soloist: Varoujan Markarian

Fourteen hundred years of Christianity has imbued Armenia with a rich legacy. In a nation where music has always played an integral part in history, it is no surprise that Armenia has developed a unique folk music of chants - Eastern in origin and concept - which spans the gamut of emotions. The Armenian scholar and artist Varoujan Markarian recorded this faith-inspiring collection in Jerusalem.

Varoujan Markarian recorded this collection of Armenian chants in the Keshet Studio in Jerusalem in November 1995.
