1.  The foot washing service (Vodn Lvah) on Holy Thursday:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSf7tpaJktM&feature=channel_page

What's so nice about this is that in addition to washing and anointing the feet of clergy, which is the normal thing to do, the Catholicos also washed and anointed the feet of six soldiers.


2.  The burial service (Taghoom) on Holy Friday:

3.  Easter liturgy:

I enjoyed how much the meistro put his heart into the singing of the choir.  Smiley  It's probably why the camera liked him so much.

Happy Easter to you Salpy.  Christ is Risen!

PS I must admit, I chuckled a little bit with the actions of the meistro.

Nice!  I see similarities with eastern orthodox and roman catholics in the video's...did Rome have influence at anytime in the Armenian history...like those papal looking miters...Also do the armenian bishop's ware the byzantine crown miters...just curious...

Yes, during the crusades there was some borrowing, and one of the things that was borrowed was the bishop's mitre.  Our priests wear a crown similar to the crowns worn by EO bishops.  They say this is because the Armenian bishops, when they started wearing the Catholic style mitres, passed their old crowns down to the priests.

We use unleavened bread, but it is different from what the Catholics use.  See reply 16 of this thread:

He is probably an EO guest clergy, perhaps from the Russian Church.  You're right, his hat is not Armenian.   Smiley

Very nice video, but when they exited the church, the procession went the oposite direction around the church than the eastern orthodox processions, is there a reason for that....Again very nice ....
