Dumb question.......
« on: September 19, 2008, 08:38:48 PM »
Just out of curiousity, can someone (who knows the system better than I) tell me what musical mode the Orthodox Church will be in the week of 9-15 November?   Will there be any difference between the new calendar and the old calendar churches?

Thanks,

Markos

[I presume that all Chalcedonian jurisdictions, Greek or Slavic, use the same assigned mode in a particular week, even if their musical systems are different]
O Lord although I desired to blot out
with my tears the handwriting of my many sins
And for the rest of my life to please Thee
through sincere repentance
Yet doth the enemy lead me astray as he wareth
against my sould with his cunning

O Lord before I utterly perish do Thou save me!

Tone 4. Since the tones are calculated from Pascha, there shouldn't be any difference between the calendars.

The GOAA will be in Tone 4, too.
