Choir Monks from the Monastery of Simonos Petra: Hymns of Mount AthosMount Athos is a peninsula located in Greece - it's approximately 350 square kilometers, and the entire area is dedicated to God. There are twenty monasteries in this area. One of those is the Holy Monastery of Simon Petras, which was built in the 13th century and is dedicated to Simon Peter, the Apostle. There are approximately 60 monks here who came together to record this CD of hymns in the Orthodox tradition, all acappella. 

This CD is a beautiful rendition of some wonderful chant music dedicated to God.  Published by Jade Music, this album lets you experience the presence of God in the songs sung by the monks at the Abbey.  This area of Greece is a very spiritual area, and the atmosphere is captured in this recording.
