Looking for Akathist to John the Theologian
« on: December 09, 2005, 01:16:08 AM »
I can't find the akathist to John the Theologian anywhere on the net.  Does anyone know how I could get it?  Is it somewhere online that I just haven't found?

I'll see if I can find it next week at school (when I get back from my extended weekend)...
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

Also, I'd like to get a CD of the Divine Liturgy in English; any recommendations?

Some parishes have recorded their own liturgies. You could check to see if you parish has done that.

There are a few that have streaming liturgies as well... I don't remember if there are links for them on goarch.org or not.

Here's another thing I'm looking for:
 S. Trubachev's setting of "Rejoice O Virgin"
I have recordings but I'm looking for the sheet music.  Anyone have any ideas?

1) The Book of Akathists published by Holy Trinity Monastery, Jordanville, includes the akathist to St John.
2) Check out this website for liturgical CD's and sheet music
