Flash Movie Coptic Audio File
« on: January 16, 2004, 04:15:02 AM »
Came across this site recently:

http://www.stgeorgejc.org/service/vesper.htm

Click on some of the links there and you'll hear various Coptic liturgical offices chanted in Coptic but with the English text in flash movie format.

I've found myself addicted to the Coptic Theotokia for Saturday myself.

Thanks for that link, watching that might eventually help learn to read the Coptic for someone like me who's to lazy to actually try to learn.

If anyone wants to hear the Midnight Praise (which comes between Vespers and Matins) in English (or other versions of Coptic) it's on tasbeha.org or coptichymns.net , but I think only with the Sunday Theotokia, I don't know of an English Saturday Theotokia online.

The Copts are being as industrious as ever, I see.

Shame there seems to be no way to download these.

There's always a way. Search for a stream capture prog which will save it to a local audio file.

Peter, would you please educate me a little on that?  I'm afraid I couldn't grasp one word in your last sentence.

Not even 'a' and 'for'?

Try this http://www.hibrosoft.com/smartgrabber.php

It installs an add-in into IE which lets you save swf's locally. You call up the page. Go to tools-->grab and then click OK and it saves the files to a directory so you can use them offline.

Of course you may not use IE.
