AllMusic Review by

This is the music of the Greek, Turkish, and Maronite communities. The major traditions, Greek and Turkish, exist separately in Cyprus, each with links to its metropole. But each has distinctly Cypriot elements and a considerable amount of common ground (as indeed is true of Greece and Turkey). The fine recordings are by Wolf Dietrich, with scruffily reproduced but adequate notes.
