Cappella Romana - Venice in the East - Music from Renaissance Crete

Here Lingas conducts Venice in the East, a program of medieval Byzantine chant and related Latin works influenced by Byzantine Tradition from Crete and the Ionian Islands, which were ruled by the Venetians after the Latin conquest of Constantinople in 1204, and from Cyprus, a Venetian outpost from 1489 to 1571. Commissioned by the Early Music Festival in Utrecht (Netherlands), the largest early music festival in the world.
