    The Theotoke Parthene is one of the most beautiful works of Byzantine music from the period following the fall of Constantinople (1453), called the period 'of the great masters'. This profoundly moving composition sets to music the angel Gabriel's salutation to Mary in the Annunciation. Beyond serving the words with lyricism, it introduces the listener into a state of inner exultation.
