At 1:12 of this youtube clip you will hear one of the favorite tradtional melodies for Mnohaja lita/Many years from the Rusyn/Lemko tradition: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uuap1nfjZu0
In Nov. of 1938, when the newly consecrated Bishop Orestes returned to New York harbor by steamship from Constantinople, he was greeted by hundreds of people at the pier who spontaneously broke out into this beloved melody. The Newark, New Jersey paper reported the next day that the new Bishop was disembarked to a rousing rendition of 'How Dry I Am' in Russian as he got off the boat.
As a young boy i had the privilege of getting to know the Metropolitan in his later years. He truly led an amazing life. Memory Eternal!
