Hi everyone!

I just got back from my third ever divine liturgy at my local Syriac Orthodox church. It was beautiful as usual, but I have a problem. I have trouble following along with the Aramaic hymns. There is the transliteration, but since the hymns are sung it can be difficult to tell when one word ends and another begins. I finally mastered my recitation of Abun dBashmayo from listening to a clip of it over and over while reading the transliteration and I was able to sing it today with everyone else in church Smiley

Anyways, I need to know some of the other major hymns. They are so beautiful that I want to sing along with everyone, but I can't Sad

So pleaseeee help me with knowing the names of the following hymns and preferably a website to where I can hear it sung:

1) What is the hymn sung at the beginning of the liturgy. After I walk in, the deacons are singing a hymn and then later the other people stand and sing a hymn. When I look in the liturgy book I see a place where there is a hymn listed but the transliteration looks nothing like what I am hearing!

2) What is the hymn that is sung during communion? I really want to know this one, it's so beautiful!

3) What are some of the others that I have forgotten to mention?

If anyone could help me out with this I would be so grateful!

Update: I found a website where I can hear all the hymns  Cheesy

But I could still use some help in knowing the names of the specific hymns I need so I can pick them out more easily from the list on the website.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I think we posted at the same time.  So now there's two of us who want to know.  This sounds like a great website.   Smiley

Hi! Thanks for responding!

Here is the website:

http://www.zmirotho.org/LiturgyHymns/LiturgyHymns.htm

And the entire list goes in order of the divine liturgy! Cheesy

So I was gone for about an hour printing up my own little packet that I can follow along with during the liturgy and I'm listening to the songs so I can get used to how to sing them. I can't wait till next Sunday!
