We here at the Paddy blog would like to wish you and your family a happy and peaceful Easter. This year I would like to share with you the beautiful voice of Nektaria Karantzi, a Greek singer of traditional Byzantine and Orthodox chant. Paddy was an admirer of Byzantium and I am sure also loved the music
Fine out more about Nektaria, her concerts and more video on her Facebook page.
Don’t forget to switch on the volume!
Thanks for the sentiments and the way you express them, with this very emotional, heartfelt hymning of utter desolation mixed with awe, gratitude, sorrow. Such beauty in the voice.
Just back from Easter Mass at Esztergom with some members of the old Hungarain families who put PLF up in Hungary, the Bannat and Transylvania in 1934. Celebrating the Easter season and the forthcoming publication of : Patrick Leigh Fermor : Noble Encounters between Budapest and Transylvania which will be launched in the house in Budapest where he stayed in 1934 on May 25th.
Thank you so very much for this message. The art selections enhanced the lovely voice of the singer. Happy Easter to all.
Thankyou,and all the best to you all,Andrew Pendlebury,(Australia)

This music is so beautiful. Thank you for introducing me to the voice of Nektaria Karantzi.
So beautiful. Thank you, what a wonderful voice!
What a lovely way to say “Happy Easter”! This particular hymn, which is sung on Holy Friday as part of the Epitaph, has very powerful words and is the climax of the Holy Week. I was really moved and since for us here in Greece, the Holy Week starts tomorrow, it really got me in the mood! Thank you for your wishes. Hope the same to you, your family and friends.
