Words to Eternal Memory
« on: August 14, 2011, 12:21:35 AM »
Does anyone know the words to the eternal memory chant in Greek, as heard here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWKGQStYLVI

Many thanks!

Memory Eternal is Aionia H Mnhmh (Note that this is what is written, and the Attic Pronunciation; h standing for eta), but would be pronounced Eonia i mnimi. Are you asking for what the deacon chants? (" Grant blessed repose, o Lord...")

The chant continues on though, like in the video, not just aionia.
