Akathist Hymn to our Sweetest Lord Jesus Christ
« on: June 21, 2016, 01:03:38 PM »
As a relatively newly chrismated Orthodox, I was looking this hymn over in my prayer book and wanted to learn to chant it. It's just so beautiful! Found the following version on YouTube.

How does one go about learning to chant this and various other Akathist Hymns? I've looked online and really couldn't find any resources where the music is written out (for the parts that are not intoned).

Never heard it in English before.  The Akathist to Jesus Christ is very popular in Ukrainian Orthodox tradition and spread to other churches.

Suggestions anyone? I would appreciate it!
