The Fall of Constantinople: Byzantine chant and polyphony c. 1453 & Motets by Guillaume Dufay Cappella Romana explores the musical legacy of the ancient civilization of Byzantium--caught between Latin West and Islamic East—with majestic ceremonies for the cathedral of Hagia Sophia, triumphant assertions of superiority by Westerners, and fervent prayers for the healing of religious divisions. Fabled Byzantium ended with the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks on 29 May 1453, inspiring the two poignant laments sung here that give Greek and Latin perspectives on the end of a 1,000-year-old empire. Comprehensive liner notes by Alexander Lingas, with hymn text in Greek or Latin and with English translations.
