The poorly-named The Great Doxologies in the Eight Modes

I didn’t notice it until I was having to enter track names manually (Manuel-ly?) in iTunes, but anybody want to look at the track list and tell me why this CD is poorly named?

    They forgot tone 3! Wow, what a blunder.

    They didn’t forget it. The Mt Lebanon Choir intentionally did not record it.

      Any sense as to why, when the title of the recording seems to suggest an intent otherwise?

      (By the way, I like your setting of Psalm 22 very much.)

    My understanding is that their director Joseph Yazbeck felt that the music from St Anthony’s Monastery for the third mode Great Doxology was not composed as well as the music for the others.

    Since the publication of the Divine Liturgy music, Fr Ephraim of St Anthony’s Monastery has improved his composition process significantly by referring to a compilation of Byzantine music formulae. His subsequent work for Vespers, Orthros, and the Menaion has been done to a more rigorous standard.

    P.S. Thank you for your kind words.
