The Church calls us to emulate the lives of those who are depicted on them: the saints, the mother of God and the Savior Himself. Today more than ever, we need role-models of how to live righteous and Godly lives. It is Eikona's desire that we all strive to be little icons of the God in whose image we were created. Eikona's recordings include both Byzantine Chant and original Contemporary Christian Music.
Byzantine Chant is the unique style of music used in Orthodox worship. It expresses and preserves the Truths of the historical Christian Church in a sublime and simple manner. Byzantine hymns lift the faithful in prayer and lead them to a fuller understanding of God with their interwoven poetic melodies. Eikona hopes to encourage the learning and singing of these hymns by the Faithful of all ages.
Eikona also addresses, through the voice of contemporary music, issues and values which our current generation is avoiding and abandoning. Eikona's goal is to provide a medium by which our people will grow closer to the Lord Jesus and the Holy Church which He founded, guides and ultimately will gather unto Himself in His Second and Glorious Coming.
