Can somebody point me to a .pdf of a certain version of the Cherubic Hymn?  Or at least tell me who the composer is?  It goes like this...

Sorry for the weird cryptology, but hopefully the general gist of the melody can be extracted from that.  I've been looking for it on youtube but without knowing the composer it's practically impossible to narrow it down, since there seem to be so many different versions of the Cherubic Hymn.  Where I go to church, St. Maximus Orthodox Mission in Denton TX, the choir sings this after the Litany for the Catechumens.

Does anyone really care what you think?

Why don't you just ask the choir director? That would seem to be the quickest way to your answer.

Great suggestion!  He's out of town for the holidays though.   Sad

Anywho, based on the overwhelming lack of response, I guess it was a little too much to hope for a quick answer based on the sketchy info that I supplied.  The Cherubic Hymn and the Litany of the Catechumens are my two favorite parts of the liturgy.  I was hoping to find something on YouTube for the Cherubic Hymn, similar to this.  It's the Litany of the Catechumens at Rugacheva.  This particular arrangement is by Kedrov, and it's my favorite arrangement.

That's on page 227 of the SVS Divine Liturgy book.
