The vendor service was fine. Zakarian's voice is one of the most sublime ever. I bought the CD particularly to have her singing Ur es mayr im. It's one of those all too common ironies that some of the greatest artists haven't been provided with the best recording engineering, though. The five stars are given so as not to detract from the vendor, and of course, the music.

The Armenian monk Soghomon Soghomonian, better known by his priest’s name of Komitas, collected hundreds of folksongs around 1900 during the course of his travels through the Armenian highlands between Van Lake, the Black Sea and the southern Caucasus. These songs, handed down orally over the centuries, express all the archaism of this ancient people’s unmistakeable culture – a culture than was nearly extinguished in the genocide of the Armenians during the Ottoman Empire from 1915 to 1917…
