In honor of the Dormition of the Theotokos (for which we’re fasting right now), O Virgin Pure (Agni Parthene):
O Victorious Leader, also in honor of the Theotokos. This is a video slideshow I put together five years ago with photos I took at Holy Protection Monastery in White Haven, PA, together with music by the choir of St. Symeon the New Theologian Orthodox Church in Birmingham, AL.
I really love several versions of the Cherubic Hymn. This video is of our own choir singing the first part of the setting by A. Katorsky.
I look forward to singing Let My Prayer Arise (the Bortniansky setting) every Kent:
My hands-down favorite: Psalm 135 (the Polyeleios) as chanted by the monks of Simonopetra Monastery on Mr. Athos
There are really too many to list! But I’ve spent the last 2 hours crocheting censers and listening to some of my favorite music so I’m glad I did this post. What are some of your favorites?
