Prayer & Worship Bass voice in orthodox music

I love that Orthodox music incorporates the bass voice as an essential element. The Protestant hymns and “contemporary” music are very soprano focused. In Byzantine chant the ison is the ground and in the modern Russian choral music the bass also often seems to have an important role. I especially love the pieces that have basso profundo. Do y’all have any favorite Byzantine and Russian orthodox music with a strong bass?
