Fairuz - Good Friday Eastern Sacred Songs

Album: Good Friday Eastern Sacred Songs
Genre:Arabic musica,Lebanese musica

Born and educated in Beirut, Fairuz (Fayrouz, Fairouz) began her musical career as a chorus member at the Lebanese Radio Station. In the late 1950s her talent as a singer became fully acknowledged. Met with unprecedented enthusiasm, Fairuz's early songs featured the singer's distinct vocal timbre and lyrics expressing romantic love and nostalgia for village life. They meshed with a delicate orchestral blend in which certain Arab instruments figured prominently but which also subtly incorporated European instruments and European popular dance rythms.

This album evokes the magical and serene setting of Good Friday as celebrated in the Eastern Church. Recorded live in Church during Easter (1962-1965). Fairuz's voice creates a meditative atmosphere. (Amazon.)
