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


A little humour from the GOC Cathedral in Portland

A little humour from the Cathedral.  This would have been about the weekend of December 18 https://soundcloud.com/john-p-presson/sunday-mode-1-st-sabbas-the-sanctified-with-st-marks-psalti.  A blessed 12 Days.

Thanks to a very kind and generous anonymous donour, my SoundCloud account has been upgraded to unlimited, and as a result I am, and will be fulfilling the wish of that donour that many of the files, primarily of the Cathedral Schola Cantorum, that were removed because of size and time restrictions of the account are now being restored and can be accessed without fetter.

We, the Schola, hope you find the audio from our services, a source of inspiration, of beauty and hopefully an impetus to join our ranks and study and sing this amazing God-bearing music of our received tradition so that we can continue this tradition "unto the ages".
