It's the perfect holiday soundtrack for the Met's Medieval Sculpture Hall: a half-dozen pop-up concerts featuring hymns and carols of the Byzantine Empire. In these antiphonal works, performed by master cantors of the Eastern Orthodox community, the musicians alternate parts in multiple languages (ranging from Russian to Armenian to Greek to Arabic), weaving an evocative sonic tapestry from an exotic past.
