Liturgy in Georgian and/or Japanese?
« on: July 05, 2003, 11:20:05 PM »
Anyone know a source to acquire a cd or tape for the divine liturgy or other Orthodox service in Georgian(slavic, not southern) and/or Japanese?  

Muchias Gracias amigos!

St. Vladimir's Bookstore used to carry a 33rpm record entitled, "Liturgical Music of the Japanese Orthodox Church."  I used to have it, but my entire liturgical music record collection (more than 30 years of collecting, and, yes, I had Georgian too!) was lost when my house was sold.  >:( :(  I did put some of the Japanese liturgical music on an audio cassette tape (which I still have), but it wasn't big enough to record everything on the 33rpm record.

David,

1) Muchas not muchias.

2) Georgian is not a Slavic language nor are the Georgians Slavs.  

3) I have a SVS Press cassette recording of Japanese liturgy and liturgical music, some of it is in Japanese and some in Slavonic.  If you are interested I can copy it for you.

PS:  This may be interesting "Georgian is a member of South Caucasian (or Kartvelian) branch of the Caucasian language family which is spoken in the area between the Black and Caspian Seas. It is not demonstrably related to any other language family. There are other subdivisions of the Caucasian family, but the exact division and their membership is debated by researchers. The term "Georgian" is sometimes used as a cover term for all South Caucasian languages. Some scholars maintain that Basque, a language whose affiliation is often hotly debated, is related to Caucasian languages (Ruhlen 1987). Georgian is the most widely spoken Caucasian language."  From http://www.lmp.ucla.edu/profiles/profg01.htm

Thanks for this information and link, TonyS. My ancestral background includes not only Pontic Greek, but Laz. Lazuri is a related Caucasian language and the "native " language of my paternal grandfather.
FWIW, not all Laz converted to Islam, internet sources to the contrary. In fact most of my "pontic" relatives in Greece today are Laz. Apparently when the infamous "population exchange" occurred, the Turks just wanted the Christians out- no matter what their ethnic heritage might have been. Today most Christian Laz are lumped with the Pontic Greeks, but we do know who and what we really are!

Maybe he meant FWIW (for what it's worth)?

Oops...One would think that 30 years of pounding these keyboards would teach one to type... :D
I don't sing any better in church either, as my psalti just informed me. Been trying to that for about 30 years too.

I have some CDs of Georgian and Japanese liturgical music.  I managed to get a copy of the above mentioned Music of Japanese Orthodox Church on record about two years ago.  It had never been opened and was in pristine condition.  I hooked my record player into my computer and then burned the MP3s onto disc for myself.  Sounds just like a CD (for the most part.)  This, I would me more than happy to copy for anyone since they don't make it anymore.

The Georgian stuff, however, is still in print, so I will gladly provide links where you can purchase it (when I can find them!)

Nicodemus,

If you can email me the mp3s, I can make them available online since they are out of print.  Perhaps Dismas would also like to host them on his site.
My email for large attachements is dave@taoofdave.com.

Thanks!

I will see what I can do.  A buddy of mine hooks me up with all the technical stuff as I don't have a computer at home and my work place doesn't have that technology on the computers.  I will see what he can do though!  At the very least, I could mail you a copy of the CD.
