A young Bulgarian bass singer has been recently having spectacular success at the biggest opera stages throughout the world. Critics compare him to Samuel Ramey and other opera singers, but they always stress on the slight Slavonic edge to his voice. Orlin Anasatssov is only 26 years old but the list of roles he has sung is amazing: Ramphis in Aida, Filippo II in Don Carlos, Basilio in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Ferrando in Il Trovatore, the bass parts in Somnambula and Norma, La Boheme, Rigoletto, Puritani, Ernani, Macbeth, Attila, Simoe Boccanegra, Faust, etc. - all of them difficult roles, sung by only a few opera singers. He has participated at Covent Garden in London, the Paris Grand Opera, La Scala in Milan, Teatro Liceu in Barcelona, Dusseldorf, Arena di Verona, Teatro Real in Madrid, Rome, Karlsruhe, Toulouse, Amsterdam, Washington, Trieste, Palma de Mallorca, Puerto Rico, Lima in Peru, Palermo … It is impossible to mention all opera theatres and towns which he has visited as guest singer. Among the conductors he has worked with are the names of Sir Colin Davis, Georges Pretre, Mark Elder, Daniel Oren, Riccardo Chailly. Along with opera singing, Orlin Anastassov is also attracted to singing Orthodox chants and just as the great singer Boris Christoff, he also indulges in studying church music. This programme is a result of this. The booklet of the CD includes the texts to the chants in three languages: Church-Slavonic, Bulgarian, and English.
Neofit, Metropolitan of Rousse writes in the CD booklet: "Orlin is a new and precious pearl of Bulgarian opera art, a cause of praise for the town of Rousse and Bulgaria. With admiration and indebtedness he dedicates his present work to the 90th anniversary of the birth of the unforgettable Boris Christoff. And with his youthful zeal for the boundless heights of art he recalls to us the flight of the eagle…".

Christian musical tradition in Bulgaria dates back long before Christianity was established as an official state religion (865). According to some records a Christian church convention took place in Serdica (Sofia) in the 4th century. It is believed that the church chants of that time differed from the Byzantium church music. When East Orthodox religion was adopted as a state religion in Bulgaria, King Boris I put an end to this tradition. The Byzantium liturgical services and chants were enforced. Byzantium church music was dominant up to the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century, in spite of the recurrent resistance of various groups of society. However, a few sources from that time show that there were attempts to create Bulgarian church music. The works of St. John Koukouzeles date from that time (13-14th c.). This tendency for developing Bulgarian church music was stopped when the country went under Ottoman rule (14th c.). At the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century a new movement for reviving the Bulgarian church tradition began. Some Byzantium chants were translated into Slavonic language, and parallel to that original Bulgarian Orthodox chants were created. After the liberation from the Ottoman rule (1878), the service liturgies of the Russian Orthodox Church became dominant. A large number of Bulgarian composers wrote works for the church. They used elements of Old Bulgarian chants and reached the level of the Russian liturgical music. Dobri Hristov, for example, wrote liturgies dedicated to priests and they are still performed at church services. In his first liturgy of St. John Chrysostom he uses Old Bulgarian intonations.
The liturgical chants of Dobri Hristov, Peter Dinev, Apostol Nikolaev-Stroumsky, etc. are a inherent part of church services, just as the Russian chants by Alexander Grechaninov, Pavel Chesnokov, Nikolai Bakhmetiev …
