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 Doxastikon of Holy Wednesday's Bridegroom Orthros. The arrangement is a hybrid composite of one of the settings in Kypsele and an arrangement of Protopsaltis Konstantine Lagouris of Montreal. I recorded this as a multitrack (pardon the timing boo-boos)to illuminate the the group singing against the sections that I assigned for a monophonarios to chant alone. A great deal was modelled after the choir chanting by my friend and colleague Stelios Kontakiotis, the former protopsaltis of the choir in Washington, DC that laureate protopsaltis Harilaos Papastolou founded so many many years ago, and now for many years protopsaltis of the parish on the Island of TInos.

Good Strength
