Not sure if this has already been done but here goes.
I thought that since the oriental orthodox have made a thread about oriental orthodox music, we could have our own music thread. I'm talking about chants, prayers, psalms, anything you can come up with  Smiley

I found this very beautiful russian prayer

O most Holy Theotokos, save us.

Here is one of my favorites: the Paraclesis to the Theotokos as chanted in Greek by monks from Mt. Athos.

Click on it. It is so beautiful.

There's this Finnish Thrash Metal song which seems to be about fools-for-Christ. It's not a Christian band so I'm not entirely convinced that it's a religious song but at least the singer/writer of the lyrics is an Orthodox Christian so he must be familiar with the concept and using the Orthodox imagery even it's not a religious song. The lyrics are about fighting against idea that intelligence is the greatest of virtues and willingly making fool of oneself for someone.
