Trisagion Hymn – Romanian Byzantine chant

Ghelasie Basarabeanul was a Romanian archimandrite, protopsalt and liturgical composer in the first half of the nineteenth century. His compositions were always within the framework of monophonic Byzantine chant. In the 20th century, some of his compositions were anonymously harmonized. I recently ran across this one and decided to set it in English.
