February 22, 2019 Length: 41:06

Greek-American Nicholas Roumas has the distinction of being the composer of the very first library-quality book of English-language Byzantine chant -- The Musical Ark, published by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese. Amy and Richard talk to Nicholas about the story behind the book, and how he learned to sing and compose Byzantine music at a time when there were few resources for learning how to do so.
