After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY


Whitsun Liturgy Cherubic Hymn To Communion

A small offering from the chanting of the Cathedral Schola Cantorum from yesterday's festal Divine Liturgy.  For those who know men who are potentially interested in learning the psaltic arts, and experienced ieropsaltai, send them the way of the Rose City.


Selection from the Divine Liturgy from 2016's Whitsun celebrations -the text for both the Liturgy and lfestal hymns are translated by HTM Brookline, and musical arrangements of classic scores by myself, and chanted by the Cathedral Schola Cantorum. Major hymnody -Cherubic Hymn in the 4th Mode composed by Petros the Peleoponesian, and Communion Hymn in the Mode 1 by Klada
