A Merry Christmas...

to all those on the old calendar.

CHRIST IS BORN! GLORIFY HIM!



A glimpse of the Hierarchical Liturgy for the Feast of the Nativity in the Cathedral of The Virgin Mary Joy of All Who Sorrow (ROCOR) in San Francisco earlier today.

Do you know what is being sung? I love that melody.

Chris,
Sadly I do not know what it is they are singing. The Slavonic hymns of the Russian Church often have an otherworldly air about them that makes them almost haunting in their beauty.
