Slavonic Chant - Vespers
« on: October 23, 2017, 12:12:53 PM »

Hello,

I am looking for the simple Slavonic chant for "Bogoroditsa Devo raduycia" that is sung in the regular Vespers service.
I need to know the Tone in which this is sung, and if possible, access the actual music notes, with 4 parts.
My Internet searches have only yielded the Rachmaninoff Vespers.
Other Internet searches involving Russian search engines have not permitted me to pinpoint where this short text is in the Vespers service.
At the moment, I don't have access to any parish that has Vespers books on hand.

Can someone help me ?  -- I need to find one or two links to send to a music group who, in fact, IS singing the Rachmaninoff Vespers, to demonstrate to them what a "normal" Vespers Slavonic Chant would be for this text.

YouTube excerpt would be ideal. 4 voices chant

Thank you.

Svetlana

It's the 4th tone.

That's  the link to pdf (the notes)

There is  the link to the Youtube video

Another version

But it's Byzantine chant (yeah, used in some Slavonic Churches, but I thought the Russian obikhod was in question) ;)

Edit: personally, I prefer this version (it's the 5th tone) than the Russian obikhod...

This is one that we use often, at our parish we mix English and Slavonic,  so when this is sung 3 times in a row it alternates, here is an English version of the same melody: http://www.saintromanos.org/files/vespfiles/otheotokos/8030-OTheotokosArchangelsky.pdf

We also often just use the simple tropar Tone IV

Those don't match. The PDF you linked is for this version.

LOL, I didn't noticed "grecheskoho raspeva", and didn't read the ntes, only the title. My mistake!
