Old Roman chant is a rare window into late antiquity traditions, at a crossroads between the ancient liturgies of Syria, Egypt, Jerusalem and Constantinople.

The Greek Alleluias constitute its most precious treasure: an indication of the Roman liturgy from the IV-Vth centuries, then chanted in Greek, a unique vestige of Old Byzantine chant. These never-recorded Alleluias were sung at Snape Maltings for the first time, in the first feminocentric performances of Old Roman chant.

The work was performed by Alexandra Pouta, Thomas Fournil, Noémie Ducimetière, Elsa Hackett Esteban, and Sandeep Gurrapadi.
