Don't ask me how it happen, but somehow i have 24 Hovhaness
CDs. Way more than some of those i like more. But there is something endearing of this work just that it is so against the 'fashionism' that has taken over so much new music. Such personal statements are what we need more of. And like your example shows how useful his music is to so many.

The picture is of the wrong St. Gregory, I believe. Since the Hovhaness piece is from his Amermian-themed opera "Etchmiadzin," I believe that the "St. Gregory" referred to is St. Gregory the Illuminator, the patron saint of Armenia.
