On this deacon's blog, you can hear a hymn from the Armenian ordination rite.  He recorded it during the consecration of three bishops:

Today is the feast day of Pope Kyrillos VI, one of today's most popular and potent intercessors amongst the Copts.

I have to say, I'm usually not a fan of music made for spiritual songs, but this was awesome, and the singer's voice is beautiful.

Are there any recordings of complete and live Indian Orthodox Liturgies in english that can be downloaded online?

EkhristosAnesti:

Two youtube links that I found useful. It is celebrated by a priest who was born and brought up here. It is only small portion of the liturgy. But unfortunately I could not find full recording of the Holy Qurbano (Eucharist)

Hello everybody this is my first time in here, I thought I might share one hymn from you tube in here with the translation that I did the best I could. The singer's name is zerfe kebede,may the Lord bless her and keep her.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7KcicFq_YE&feature=related

My nard( type of perfume) is my Redeemer and He has captured my heart with the sweetness of His  scent
Having seen the piercing of His hands I left all and followed Him.(2x)

I have no sleep for my eyes, and my tears have bathed my face
I have woken up in the middle of the night and I am out in search of my beloved.

My nard.....

You are the rose of saron that I found in the desert
I am sick for Your love; I am healed with Your cross

My nard....

 Surpassing the mountains, encompassing the horizons
Just when the sun started to set and as the evening approached Your love summoned me my Lord.

My nard....

His left arm made me rest in peace, with His right arm He snatched me from death and embraced me.
I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine , who can take me away from the King!

My nard...

you are most welcome Aidan. Dear Volnutt, I saw you posted Mirtneshe's hymn so I tried to translate that one as well so others can enjoy it too. I ask all to keep in mind that english is not my first language  Grin
This hymn refers to the individual Christian and then the experience of the suffering Ethiopian church collectively, it is both melancholic and joyful at the same time as most orthodox hymns are Smiley I pray its edifying beauty comes forth .


There is no one like You for me O Lord
Your Love O Lord has touched my heart
I learnt to meditate on Your commandments as a babe
O Lord ,only You remain as You Are, only You remain the same.(x2)

May my boat serve You to teach
May my heart hear Your words only
Though the day has turned into night
The fish still heard Your command.

There is no one like You……

You are my beloved, You are my glory
Yours is my house ,Yours is my body
You have leveled the mountain beneath my feet
Do not stop Your help so I may not fear, so I may not die.

There is no one like You……


I regret the days I have lived without knowing You
Lo! Such love that You are, sweeter than the sweetness of honey!
What life is there other than You?!

There is no one like You……

You have slain our slayer
Helped us pass those days of suffering
We know Yours is tomorrow the new day also
So we cleave to You and with longing hearts sing Your Glory!

There is no one like You……
……………..>><<…………..

Iconodule, I do not know if there is any credible online store you can get those CDs but if u know any ethiopian stores you might want to look for them in there.however u can easily listen to most of the hymns online from youtube, or other church websites.
Hello Volnutt, this one you posted is realy one of my favorites.With this mezmur I feel its necessary to include a brief explanation of the accompanying video clip, it depicts the ‘abenet’ school /  in these schools the church students from all over the country come to learn writing, reading , memorizing scripture starting with the psalms and the gospel ,holy liturgy  and other prayers of the church, the understanding ,deciphering and creating the poetic renderings done in the geez language. The church music with its various levels, theology of the church, the dogmas and cannons , the teachings of the church fathers, etc.  as you can see the traditional way of how the church managed to pass on the faith and holy tradition has not changed much. Most of those students have traveled great distances left their home towns to come and settle near the school. each day they rely on the nearby Christian households for their daily food. Usually the students travel two by two, into villages and when they come near a household, they use the most loved and revered name, a name invoked at the birth of every Ethiopian Muslim or Christian, to ask for whatever that household is capable of giving. ‘ be ente sima le maryam, tezekerun’ / in the name of Mary, remember us/   this way of asking for help is an identifying mark of those students ,this will get them the support they need , be it water, flour, spices, the traditional Ethiopian bread, whatever stew is available, whatever grain they have sometimes even shelter from the elements. Their tradition is to bring what they have together and share it with those who did not get enough for that day. If it takes a village to raise a child, it definitely takes a village in Ethiopia to send them to the school of the Orthodox Church to become servants of the church. The care of those students is entrusted to the Theotokos as each of them leaves the safety of their parents home. The villagers see the caring for those who are under her protection a blessing and a Christian duity. The life of the students is not an easy one, it’s filled with trials that test their determination to finish school, and mature in the spiritual life and sometimes the danger extends even to their physical safety as they travel from village to village. The attempt to improve the present condition of the abenet schools is an ongoing effort with in the church.
 now I have atempted to translate the hymn.. so it goes like this.

I don’t get enough of calling your name, I take you wherever I go, you nurture my soul.
Come enter my house and your praise be abundant in me./2x/

You are the inheritance of the saints, O city of our God.
Glorious refuge of those in need.
Bless me my dear mother with your love
 And may my soul be the fountain of your praise.

I don’t get enough of calling your name…./2x/
   
 In you is written the word of our freedom
You are the tablet of the alphabet of life and your teaching is holiness.
No one created is able to contemplate the depth of your mystery.
The beauty of your name lingers in the heart forever.

I don’t get enough of calling your name…./2x/

In the solitude of my exile
I found blessed company in you and light in the midnight hour
You rekindled my hope, and quenched my thirst
Filled my humble abode with the abundance of your blessing.

I don’t get enough of calling your name…./2x/


With the sweetness of your name and your loving kindness
You are my comfort in my hour of sadness
In you the peace of the world is initiated
And you never abandon those that suffer through the storm of time.

I don’t get enough of calling your name…./2x/
.........>>.........
Glory be to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit both now and ever and unto the ages of ages Amen.

Christ is Risen!
Greetings Volnutt , very briefly (because there is a lot of symbolism that is integrated within it)I will try to explain .what you are seeing and hearing is called ‘wereb’ the way they are moving is called ‘shibsheba’ . It’s usually done with two groups facing each other,( although it can be done in groups of three or four also; they all have their own symbolisms) one group representing the angels the second humanity both praising God together. If the place has an elevated area like you are seeing on the video those on the highest plane represent the angles those on the lower plane represent the humans, because of the Incarnation of the Logos this new song this new union of praise of the two races ascends to the throne of the Triune God. This alignment is what is most often preferred when wereb is done to commemorate that restoration of the children of Adam among the celestial Choir that praises God without ceasing. This restoration is symbolized in the way they move during ‘shibesheba’ .  It’s a constant movement from left to right as it is a constant joyful testimony and thanksgiving for what Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has done for us. Christ has taken Adam from death to life, from shame to glory, from hell to paradise. There is a lot of bowing symbolizing the passion of our Lord, The journey to Golgotha carrying His cross all for the love of mankind. There is the victorious joyous bowing of all humanity renewed in the Risen Christ to the Triune God. God willing I might be able to add few things to this discussion. Until then, here is the wereb and what it means roughly translated , I am only sorry that someone else did not do this particular translation because I feel I have not kept the poetic beauty of this wereb. Because most werebs are short poetic bundles who make a play of words holding vast meaning in them, well in any case this is the best I could do.

Deber tilul,wedebir regu’e lemint yitenese’u adbar regu’ane / debir zesemru yehadir westetu egziabeher aman tesebeha bedebre tabor, aman be aman /2/ tesebeha bedebere tabor.

 It is a steady and fruitful (fertile) mountain, but why mention (raise?) the steady mountains, because it’s this mountain God chose to dwell in. indeed! truly! He is glorified on Mount Tabor. Truly, truly He is Glorified on Mount Tabor.

Aman be aman
Tesebeha bedebre tabor

Truly ,truly, He is Glorified on Mount Tabor!
Truly Glorified!
On Mount Tabor!
…….>>….
Glory be to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit both now and ever and unto the ages of ages Amen.

What is the box with the roses behind the Cross?

It represents the tomb of Christ. A small wooden cross is wrapped in fine linen and placed within it. It is carried in a procession around the church at the conclusion of the service.

Here is a more recent version. Unfortunately the cameraman had technical difficulties but the resolution is much better.
