Wednesday we introduced you to new Delos artist Isabel Bayrakdarian, and today we’re excited to share a new playlist on YouTube featuring performances, recordings, interviews and more:
Mother Of Light
Armenian hymns and chants in praise of Mary
Isabel Bayrakdarian, soprano
Soprano sorceress Isabel Bayrakdarian, acclaimed internationally for her glittering accomplishments on both stage and screen, presents – in this hypnotically alluring album of Armenian sacred music – a more spiritual aspect of her multifaceted musical persona.
Isabel conceived this project as a heartfelt gift to God for sparing the life of her mother, and the entire album is very much a “family affair.” Her husband arranged the pieces, her brother plays the ceremonial percussion instruments, and her two sisters join her to form a vocal trio in several tracks.
