Slavonic Anaphora - Carpatho-Russian Chant
« on: December 24, 2010, 12:44:32 AM »
The Anaphora in Church Slavonic from Christ the Saviour Cathedral, ACROD, Johnstown, PA this Sunday, December 19, 2010  with responses in Carpatho-Russian/Rusyn plain chant. It is good to hear Metropolitan Nicholas' voice sounding strong as he has been ill much of this past year. The responses were led by St. Nicholas Choir, Homestead, PA.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqDUtBFnsYQ

Thanks.
I have never heard the Rusyn Chant before.  It sounds similar to the Galician Chant.
Just one question: is it nor,al for the choir to drag it out so much?
I have never heard chanting this slow before.  The Metropolitan I noticed sings at a tiny quicker rate.
Not trying to be offensive, just want to know what the custom is.

I've heard that is a Great Russian influence.
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

Good joke.  Thanks for the laugh.

Yes, it is similar to the Gallician Chant. Yes, that particular choir and its director are slow paced. I was taught to lead the chant at a quick pace. I think that those whose families came from the Presov regions of modern Slovakia, much closer to Gallicia, tended to sing faster than those of the Uzhorod 'school' in Transcarpathia, modern Ukraine.

Thanks.  I have heard Galician Chant a few times only visiting Ukrainian Catholic Churches and the pace is very slow here in Canada.  But when you visit a church in Galicia such as in Lviv, the pace is a bit quicker but  still not what I am used to in the Orthodox Church with Kyivan Chant.  Also the CD's of their church choirs sing at a quicker pace.
Maybe the Ukrainian Catholics in Canada preserved an older tradition especially on the prairies when they came in 1891.
Nice to know that in the USA, the Carpathian traditions are preserved and used on a regular basis.
Just a guess, I really don't know enough on the topic.

Your Metropolitan does have a good voice.  Isn't he celebrating a special birthday soon?
I hear/ read only good things about him.

Sorry to hear about his health.  I will be praying for him personally.
