eMatins church music
« on: November 24, 2011, 05:44:48 PM »
I was looking up some music, and I found this website. It was put together by Fr. Serpahim Dedes, who has done several recordings of chant. I thought it may be helpful to those who enjoy chant, or those who are trying to learn.  :angel: Enjoy.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

He said he had a horrible house
I looked in it and learnt to shut my mouth

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

The music, on the whole, is very good and we chanters use this material quite often. The major drawback is that the English often doesn't flow very well and is awkward.  Also, some very interesting choice translations.
