This is the first Indian Orthodox service I've ever seen where the hymns didn't prominently feature synth beats. A beautiful ceremony.

I've been to Indian Orthodox liturgy once. I was the only white guy in the room, I didn't realise it was gender-segregated and had to be asked to move, I couldn't understand anything, and it sounded like Bollywood. It was an unusual experience, to say the least.

I feel that way too because I didn't grow up with any of that stuff in my parish.

Don't worry, it comes in midway through the first video.

There's much worse out there.  This video is not bad at all.  I've been in Liturgies which were only missing the spinning platform, fake horses, lights, and mirrors.

I had a similar experience when I was searching for Indian Orthodox Services online.  I was very discouraged at finding that the most prominent videos were ones with heavy use of synthesizers.  I really had to search to find hymns that didn't contain any instruments.

I am truly sorry you did not have a good experience during the liturgy.  I hope you get a chance to visit again where there is less use of "bollywood" style music and someone can help you understand what is happening.


I feel that way too because I didn't grow up with any of that stuff in my parish. 

I really wish that the use of keyboards and other instruments would be banned during the liturgy.  It is so easy to start using but It seems almost impossible to remove.  I find that it is so much more beautiful when done acapella.

Generally, I agree, although I am willing to make an exception for Indian classical instruments.  I've attended a few services where the choir used those, and it was lovely.  But if you have to plug it into the wall, chances are I hate it.

Oh, it wasn't a bad experience, just an unusual one. Everyone was very nice.

If you have any links to videos or recordings of services using classical instruments, please share.  I would be very interested in listening to them.  I am going to to try searching for them.

I am glad to hear it wasn't a bad experience and that the people were nice.

The church I will be attending in New York has a very traditional group of Byzantine psalti, they use an artificial ison throughout the service and it actually sounds great. I was very surprised.

As for good Syriac services (and in English!), these are awesome:

Unfortunately I do not, however I may in the future! If you would like to use the ison yourself, you can purchase the app for the iPad for relatively cheap. I believe the name of the app is "World Scales" or something similar. The isons sound like a group of men doing it, very realistic.

I only have an ipod nano I don't really use since I got my Galaxy S4. I'll take your word for it though. Don't think I'll forget about that recording!  Wink  Grin
