Dear Gebre MenfesKidus,
How are you? I hope that all is well. Please continue to be strong in your mission(s).
My brother, it is very difficult to find any Ethiopian/Eritrean Orthodox Tewahido Church Liturgy
in English, Spanish
, but you my find it in Dutch
. As one of the faithful brothers posted, you will find something on www.ethiopianorthodox.org
, but the person (priest?) chanted with a Gregorian style (in English).
There are very few EOTC's
in the US that use a complete English Liturgy and even when they use the English, most of the 'commands' are chanted in Gi'iz.
The prayers and readings will be said in English, but... Outside of the US, namely in the Caribbean and S. America, where the clergy and congregants are typically non-Ethiopian, mostly (if not all) English is used.
Perhaps there are individuals that have recorded the Divine Liturgical Service
when it was said in English, but you may have to join several forums and 'post an ad'.
God's willing, in the future, there will be more materials translated from Gi'iz, Amharic
I'm sorry that I couldn't be of more help. God bless you and take care...Peace in the name of our Lord Christ and may holydays of our Lord bless you!
PS. I wanted to add something that may be interesting, if you may not know already: It has only been about 4-5 years that the Gebr Himamat (the Service Book for the Holy Week)
was translated into Amharic! Recently, the Ethiopian Bible (particularly the Old Testament) was officially translated from Gi'iz to Amharic! Before, the King James Version (?)
was translated from English to Amharic and that was widely used! This is very surprising, even to Ethiopians! Prior to this, only the New Testament was available from Gi'iz to Amharic, along with the Psalms of David (me'z'mu'r da'wee't).
