What's this chant?
« on: October 03, 2012, 08:32:50 AM »
Does anyone recognise the Byzantine chant in this video? It runs from 0:01-0:44
"April is the cruellest month, breeding
lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
memory and desire, stirring
dull roots with spring rain."
-T.S. Eliot

Hard to tell from such a short sample, but it could be one of the psalms.

I tried to hear some words but couldn't decypher anything. But the chant sounds so very good.

Sounds nice but have they ever heard of a tripod? This looks like public access from the 1970's.

The chant is the only part that uses both side of my headset for some strange reason. The quality is pretty bad but I've been replaying the first part a lot, but can't find out what chant it is.
