Chant by the cantors of St. George Coptic Church, accompanied by icons from the parish.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghnXK9dVH58
It's a little early for Christmas, but I really enjoyed this site:http://syrianorthodoxchurch.com/pastor/SYRIAC_C/syriac_c.htm
Tasbeha - Theotokia Part 7 - Hail to you MaryI don't recall having heard the Theotokos being compared to a dove before.
The Beautiful Dove – The title is in remembrance of the beautiful dove that carried to our father Noah a branch of an olive tree, as a symbol of peace, bringing to him the good news of the deliverance from the waters of the flood (Genesis 8:11). With this title, the priest burns incense in front of her icon when he goes out of the sanctuary and says: “Hail to you, O Virgin Mary, the beautiful dove”. In the Praxis response, the deacons chant in Coptic “Hail to you, Mary, the fair dove, who bore to us God the Logos.” Saint Mary is compared to the dove in her simplicity and purity, and the action of the Holy Spirit in her. She resembles the dove which brought the good news of the deliverance after the flood, because she brought the good news of our deliverance (salvation) in Christ.Source
Avedis - Armenian song for Christmas
A debtera... is an itinerant religious figure... in the Ethiopian and Eritrean Orthodox Tewahedo Churches, who sings hymns and dances for churchgoers, and who performs exorcisms and white magic to aid the congregation. ...They may in fact be officially ordained as deacons, or may act outside the Church hierarchy. They are usually feared by the local population, who often mistake them for madmen.Performing debterasKahens and debteras are two separate professions, though it is possible to pursue both roles. The Ethiopian Church sees the division as following the model used by the ancient Israelites.During Lenten services, debteras tap prayer sticks to keep the rhythm. The Ethiopian Church condones the performances of debteras, citing the story in 2 Kings of King David dancing at the temple and Psalm 47:1 ("clap your hands") for Biblical examples.
Yes, that's the melody for an Armenian hymn sung on Holy Thursday evening, "Where Are You, My Mother."
