Eastern Orthodox liturgical chant sampler CD for free

I found this Eastern Orthodox liturgical music sampler the other day. Check it out, it’s free, just fill out the page at the Liturgica site and then download the zip file. And poof! Instant beautiful sacred music from our Eastern brothers and sisters. And, by the way, these seem to be full-length songs. Free, beautiful, full-length. Three out of three! :) (Track list below.)

Description from the sampler page at Liturgica: A cross section of the wide range of liturgical chant and choral music that comprises the Eastern Orthodox milieu, including Byzantine chant in English and Greek, Russian choral music, and Russian “obhikhod” chant.
