Hello

I'm a long time viewer and first time poster. I've come across this Christian chant, which I'm not sure where it comes from. I'm pretty sure the language is Greek, although not 100% sure. It sounds nothing like any other Greek Orthodox chant I've heard. I think it has an oriental feeling to it, which makes me think it could be from middle eastern christians but I'm not 100% sure. My best guess is that it's from byzantine chant cd or dvd, but I'm not sure who the artist could be or which church or monastery it could be from. I've uploaded it to youtube. The link is here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mj7WJd4fyhQ&feature=youtu.be . I was wondering does anybody recognize this music or where its from or what cd/dvd its from or who the artist could be?

Thanks

It is in Greek, and is from the Praises of the Matins of Great Friday, which is held on Holy Thursday Evening:

They stripped Me of My garments, and clothed Me in a scarlet cloak; they placed a crown of thorns upon My head and put a reed into My right hand, that I might smash them like a potter’s vessels.


The chanting style and melody is typical of what would be heard in many Greek churches.

This is the chant style usually called "Byzantine chant" and it's the standard chant of churches in the Greek tradition. However, the Greek Orthodox Church also has some modern styles of chant, usually polyphonic. In my experience the average Greek service will have a mix.

What we are hearing is a specialized chant that has a specific name that I can not think of right now. The most common use of this style is to read the epistle or gospel lesson. It is the common practice (especially in the Patriarchate of Antioch) to sing the 15th Antiphon on Holy Friday Orthros (and also during Royal Hours when the hymn is repeated) in the Plagal 2nd of this style.
