Review: In 2002, the Nuns of St. Paisius Serbian Monastery in Safford, Arizona released "Duhovna Lira" (The Spiritual Lyre), a CD of Serbian spiritual songs, on texts by St. Nikolai (Velimirovic) (+ 1956). On the present CD many of these simple, endearing melodies have been translated into English. As before, they are sung with lovely simplicity and musicality by the small choir of nuns of St. Paisius Monastery. This CD highlights and revives the historically important tradition of Orthodox non-liturgical songs with a spiritual content, that has largely been neglected among modern-day Orthodox, but which is, nevertheless, an important traditional means of educating and nurturing both children and adults in the faith.--Dr. Vladimir Morrisan
