Tikey Zes: 'Soma Christou'


"During the midnight Easter Liturgy, scores of Orthodox choirs sing Tikey Zes's arrangement of the Paschal communion hymn, “Soma Christou.” As a tribute to Tikey Zes and his music, choir members from around the United States helped AXIOS Music create the first-ever Orthodox virtual choir. We chose to record “Soma Christou” because of its singular place in the annals of Greek Orthodox choral music in the United States.

"Translation from first published score of "Soma Christou": 
Receive ye the Body of Christ; taste of the Fount of Immortality. Alleluia.
