The Cathedral Choral Society performed a setting of "Today the Virgin" at our Joy of Christmas concert in 2000. (You can hear a brief snippet of it as performed by Chanticleer at amazon.com.) I assumed at the time it was an ancient text, but apparently it was written in the late 1980s. I guess it stands to reason that a member of a Greek Orthodox religious order could mimic an ancient style better than most.
