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

The following is from last Saturday's Vespers for the above.  The both Doxastika melodies for the Hierarch were written by me more or less from standard formulaic construction -an exercise in mental discipline I try to force myself, so if we have a Shola, we can all chant from written music.  The Schola except for the isokratis didn't show, so it was just he and I.  

I spliced out the litanies -you've all heard those a thousand times.
