about

A collection of Protestant hymns recorded by Romanos for a dear friend and patron of the St Sabbas Russian Orthodox Monastery (www.stsabbas.org) in Harper Woods, Michigan. If you have not visited St Sabbas Monastery, you must. The Abbot has created a place of beauty to remind us of Paradise and to urge us to ever live trying to noetically return. The monastery is funded by a European cuisine fine-dining restaurant called The Royal Eagle (www.theroyaleagle.org) with a world-renown chef from the Czech Republic; he was professionally trained in Europe for five years. The restaurant has been featured in several major newspapers to include the Detroit Free Press and the Washington Post, and also several local news channels have filmed segments from the monastery and restaurant. The monastery's motto comes from a Dostoevksy novel ("The Idiot"): Beauty will save the world. You must visit them. Vocals, piano and violin on this CD all performed and recorded by the chanter, Romanos.
