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
"Who wants to be consistent? The dullard and the doctrinaire, the tedious people who carry out their principles to the bitter end of action, to the reductio ad absurdum of practice. Not I."
-Oscar Wilde, The Decay of Lying

Hard to tell from such a short sample, but it could be one of the psalms.
No longer posting here. Anyone is welcome to email me at the address in my profile.

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.
