Nativity Matins recording 2016
Nativity Greetings from Portland GOC
A blessed Nativity to all our friends and benefactors for the Feast of the Nativity of our Lord, God and Saviour Jesus Christ.
I have attached a link to Soundcloud.com where I recorded selections of the Matins from last night's agrypnia. To note, when we were first made a Cathedral, we were asked to follow the Russian custom of treating the Cathedral as if the Ordinary were present at all times, which includes "Holy Master", the Many Years etc.
