What kind of chant is this?
« on: June 26, 2013, 03:33:39 PM »
I found this video on Youtube. The title says something about old russian chanting, and I thought it might be Znamenny Chant, but I am not sure.

What's up with all the commentary?  First the bishop talks for a while, then after "Blessed is the Kingdom..." a deacon starts talking?

I knew old women liked to talk in church, but the priests?

I've watched only a few minutes of it but it's normal Liturgy. Dc. Kurayev is explaining some parts of the service. I suppose you know who is he.

That's what I didn't get...if it was a normal Liturgy, why the need to interrupt the flow of the service every few minutes for commentary?  Is that common in Russia? 

I wanted to watch the video, but after the first litany I couldn't take it anymore.  The singing was beautiful, and I love Jesus, but the interruptions annoyed me.
