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

Αιωνία σου η μνήμη αγαπητέ Δημήτριε! 

The Ieropsaltis Dimitris Houpas, founder of one of the most resourceful websites on Byzantine Music (www.ieropsaltis.com) has reposed.  Dimitris and his wonderful website, full of resources about the Psaltic Art and audio samplings of some of the greatest psaltai in recent history have been a great inspiration to my own practice of “the craft”.  Thank you for your tremendous contributions, teacher, rest eternal, may light perpetual shine upon you, may your memory be eternal!
