Η Ορθόδοξη Εκκλησία της Φινλανδίας είναι αυτόνομη αρχιεπισκοπή του Πατριαρχείου Κωνσταντινουπόλεως – το ποίμνιό της αριθμεί 60.000 πιστούς, το 1% περίπου του πληθυσμού της χώρας.
Arctic Light : Finnish Orthodox Music είναι μια συλλογή θρησκευτικών έργων όχι ιδιαίτερα γνωστών Φινλανδών συνθετών – ανάμεσά τους ο Peter Mirolybov [1918-2014]. Ακούμε το Eksapostilario, πρώτο από τους Τέσσερεις Ύμνους του για την Κοίμηση της Θεοτόκου. Αποδίδει η Cappella Romana υπό τη διεύθυνση του Ivan Moody.

      I agree! This guy is invisible, no info abut him even in Wikipedia. A had a hard time searching for his date of birth & death!
      The only stuff I have of him is this work from the Arctic Light compilation album – I don’t think there’s other stuff recorded.
      I sent you the whole 4 Hymns via We Transfer.
