Irene Papas & Vangelis • Rapsodies
Vangelis’ second collaboration with Irene Papas features music and text based on (or inspired by) Greek Orthodox liturgical chant. Papas sings the Greek Lyrics which are in fact Greek Orthodox Christian Hymns. Vangelis composed one additional song that blends nicely with the other material.
In most countries this album is hard to find.
