He probably got it from the Divine Liturgy Project at St. Anthony's.

Here you go!

Sorry, I am incorrigible...Smiley To me, this sounds very much like what a "muedzin" sings from a "minaret" of a mosque, calling the faithful to a "namaz." Very Oriental... I personally have a lot more aesthetic fulfillment when I hear a European-style music of the Baroque and post-Baroque epoch. That's what influenced the "Kyiv chant" of the 17-th century and that's what shaped the tunes and harmonies that I hear in a present-day Ukrainian Orthodox church (http://www.cdbynet.net/mass_ukrainian.html). Please don't take it as "Greek-bashing" or something, it's just what I was brought up on, and that's what is beautiful to me.

May I ask if it was the axion esti in the 2nd mode? (because the video is no longer available).
This is the axion estin chanted by him (he's probably in his late 60's, shortly before his death-he died 72 years old)

Yes, it does.  There are variances in the St. Anthony's melody from the original, solely for the purpose of matching emphases to the now-translated words (i.e. transcription changes).  But the yfos (style, mannerism) is like the Greek.

Unfortunately for us, this association is because of the Turkish adoption of the dominant music of the region - i.e. they borrowed it from us.  I suppose I'm disappointed due to the circumstances that lead you to feel this way, not the fact that you do.

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.
