Lydia Kakabadse....Ithaka

This is probably a must-have CD for anyone who is interested in / enjoys choral music, as Kakabadse (British but with roots in European countries including Greece and Russia) takes the listener on a journey through time.
“Ithaka” symbolises a journey (from Odysseus’s literal attempt to get home) and each of the tracks in the first piece, Odyssey, takes different styles of choral music, such as Archaic (monophonic, old instruments) Roman (Greek Orthodox liturgy) or Modern (includes the Greek national anthem).
