Lol I stupidly got in a fight with an atheist in the comment section of the YouTube Valaam Agni Parthene.. what a waste of time! I’ll never do that again.
The Valaam chants are so “pure” sounding… “God is with us” (available in English) is another one of my favorites… Is Valaam chant its own category, or is it “Zmamenny”?
And I don’t think all secular music is destructive… For example, “Va Pensiero” by Giuseppe Verdi (from the opera “Nabucco” {Nebuchadnezzar}) is very uplifting… It’s known in English as “The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves”… The words are from the Psalm, “by the rivers of Babylon, where we sat down and wept when we remembered Zion”…
There is a great version on YouTube (performance in Rome) where the audience demands a reprise and there is not a dry eye in the house, including on stage!
