Title: Chant byzantin
Soeur Marie Keyrouz
Choral de l'Eglise Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre

Sister Marie Keyrouz possesses an amazing voice. A practicing nun born in Lebanon and a holder of multiple degrees (including religious studies and musicology), she has mastered many styles of sacred vocal music. This CD showcases her mastery of the Byzantine style. Her amazing voice soars, wails, and wafts over a river of dense vocal polyphony compliments of the Chorale de l'eglise Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre. Keyrouz and the Choir perform all songs a capella.
The songs follow the lineage of the Christian Holy Week, and the booklet gives the days of the week upon which specific songs get sung. Keyrouz performs all songs in Arabic, Greek, or both. Stories of Mary Magdalene, Judas Iscariot, The Last Supper, and Christ's Passion, death, and Resurrection pervade the lyrics (translated into French, English, and German in the booklet) and culminate in the final three tracks devoted to Easter Sunday. Overall the performance is a deeply moving one and will probably evoke religious feelings even in the non-religious. She sings with the passion and conviction of a fervent believer (and, being a nun, we can safely assume that she is in fact one). Sister Marie Keyrouz has also become a small industry unto herself. She has a multimedia Flash website full of animated effects, videos of her performing in various venues, biographies, photos, and tour information. She even released a DVD. Her dedicated main fan base seems focused in Europe and the Middle East.
This CD will satisfy cravings to learn about Byzantine music or simply to hear some great polyphonic singing. All listeners should prepare for a deeply moving, meditative, and spiritual experience.
