Liturgy from St. Isaac Cathedral in St. Petersburg
« on: January 21, 2014, 12:00:08 PM »
I came across this beautiful, chanted Liturgy from the St. Isaac's in Petersburg.  Not the usual 'high Moscow' Patriarchal type of production, but rather it is led by a choir but is being chanted by most of the congregation. Very moving. Would someone versed in Russian chant history please provide some background. Thank you. (As I've always said, my feelings about the Russian church are 'complicated'......)

Lovely, thanks for sharing. :)

There is written on the beginning it's a reconstruction from XVIIth century. And 3 hours is an overkill.

And there is Dn Kurayev.

Are the bulk of the chants those used by the Old Believers? Also, is this an OB service?

It doesn't look like an OB service, nor it is mentioned in the description of the video.

He talks quite a bit.  Is this a "teaching" liturgy of some sort with him explaining the different parts?

He is giving some kind of sermon about the Beatitudes.

And the Apostle was in Russian. Modernists!

The neat thing about internet video is you can zip through a really long sermon without nodding off or taking a walk!

It's a beautiful video.  I wish I could have been there.

I'm very happy to see Bishop Ambrosy and Archdeacon Andrei Kuraev.

Some of the singing is Znamenny, which is the classic Russian medieval chant, which is the only chant used by Old Believers (but which is not exclusive to them).

Unfortunately the youtube account for the video has been terminated.  If anyone knows another link to this video, I would be very grateful.

I don't know how I missed this. I too would be interested in seeing it.

For those interested, here is more videos which are similar, using older singing.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7d4ex9xU-jE
(don't know why it starts at that part, but just rewind if you want)

and this one showing close up at the singing:

and this one, walking around, you can even notice the males and females are seperated... you will even see a stereotypical babushka at around the first 11 seconds!, if you watch any of the videos watch this one , this one is short
