Radio Akritas: Greek carols


On Radio Akritas, I've made available some Christmas and New Year's carols from various parts of the Greek kosmos, which give a good indication of the heterogeneity of the Greek tradition, how the larger Greek world consists of multifarious, smaller Greek worlds.

The carols are from:
1. Zakynthos
2. Magna Graecia/Megali Ellas, i.e. southern Italy
2. Epiros
3. Propontis
4. Thrace
6. Crete
7. Cyprus

More carols from the Greek kosmos can be heard here:

The depiction of the nativity is from the church of Panayia tou Araka, in the village of Lagoudhera in the Troodos mountains, Cyprus.

Καλά Χριστούγεννα σε όλους
