Thanks for the links Hiwot- this is a jackpot!

Can someone more technically competent than I explain how I might download these songs instead of just playing them?

you are very welcome Iconodule  Smiley
I am very technologicaly challenged  but I think if you can download it with real player then after you are done downloading you can convert it using the convert feature on realplayer to mp3 or whatever you wish. if that does not work i hope somebody tells us something that does   Undecided

Is there any good OO music in English? It seems like most of what's being posted in this thread is in the particular Church's respective liturgical language.

One of my favorites is the English Midnight Praises by St. Antony Monastery in California. They have also recorded a few hours of the Agpeya (Coptic book of the hours) in English, but I haven't had a chance to listen to those yet. I bet they're great.

St. Mark's in D.C. has several CDs that are at least partially in English (I only own Kiahk vol. 3, but from what I remember the verses generally alternate: One in English, one in Arabic, one in Coptic). A lot of the churches in Canada and Australia seem to have English-language CDs recorded, too, though I don't have any. And if you go to a Coptic site like tasbeha.org you can find many liturgies recorded in English by Fr. Anthony Hanna, Fr. Antonious Tanios, etc. in their media section.

selam lekulekemu  Smiley

On this day Meskerem/September 29 of Ethiopian Calendar, or October 10 of European Calendar, our most beloved, the glorious, Virgin Saint and Martyr Hripsime/Arsema of Armenia and her Companions are commemorated. As she remains quick to aid  the Christians in Ethiopia through her unfailing miraculous intercession and love, she is in turn highly honored, loved and  very dear to Ethiopians, along with the ancient  and new churches and monasteries built in her name, there continues youth and adult  associations forming in her name in Ethiopia. Here is one mezmur about her. May her intercession be with us. Amen!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yz83IG9wvU0&feature=related

Ye Iyesus arebegna ye emenet selefegna/ the warrior of Jesus, Charging with Faith
Honeshal Arsema  midir yihin yisma/ this is what you are Arsema so let the world hear of you.

Yedanshebet demu arefobish mahetemu/ sealed with the blood of salvation
Meseqel teshekemesh seyefin yeteqebelsh/ in carrying the cross you accepted the sword
Aberash arsema qeltesh endeshama/ like a candle you shined while melting
Lesemaetenetish zemachin yidresish/ and we sing of your martyrdom

Ye Iyesus arebegna ye emenet selefegna/ the warrior of Jesus, Charging with Faith
Honeshal Arsema  midir yihin yisma/ this is what you are Arsema so let the world hear of you.

 Tansash Armenia tasebesh Ethiopia/ let Armenia remember you and Ethiopia commemorate you
 Yimesekerew alem tsinatshin zelalem/ let the world witness of your zeal and steadfastness.
Lekefeleshiw waga geta ejun zerega/ for the price you paid, the Lord stretched His arm towards you.
Aklil berasish lay anurwal elshaday/ and the Almighty Crowned your head with the crown of Glory.

Ye Iyesus arebegna ye emenet selefegna/ the warrior of Jesus, Charging with Faith
Honeshal Arsema  midir yihin yisma/ this is what you are Arsema so let the world hear of you.

Gejzeim gejzi endalew timeketegnaaw ayew/ the proud saw that there is a Lord even over the lords
Tor endemayegeza kegeta meaza/ that the lance will not rule over the beauty of the fragrance of the Lord
Yihew tarik qomo Simshin teshekemo /  behold the pillar of witness stands baring your name
Weresenew zinashin Azemin gedleshin/ we sing of your good fight,as we remember your life.

Ye Iyesus arebegna ye emenet selefegna/ the warrior of Jesus, Charging with  Faith
Honeshal Arsema  midir yihin yisma/ this is what you are Arsema so let the world hear of you.

Kebizuwoch terta temertesh kegeta/ chosen by the Lord from among many
Letalaqu kibir seberesh yafiqir/ captive of that love that calls you for the great glory
Athanasia enatish meche tetsetseta/your mother Athanasia never regretted your fight
Yemoteshew lersu new motishin lemotew/ for she knows that you have died for the Him who died for you

Ye Iyesus arebegna ye emenet selefegna/ the warrior of Jesus, Charging with  Faith
Honeshal Arsema  midir yihin yisma/ this is what you are Arsema so let the world hear of you.

Mezmur by the secular singer Teddy afro( although most people  in Ethiopia do not like it when secular singers want to do both, that is the secular songs and the sacred mezmur,  and I agree for the most part however I also think this opens the chance for his fans who are christian and non christian alike to hear the message of the Gospel and who  knows...  Grin )  Anyway ,I was listening to this today and thought may be you guys might enjoy it as well.Here Teddy prays for himself and his country men, so bad translation all, here it goes.

Huh. I've never heard that in English before. It sounds good. I like how they elongated the pronunciation of "Mary", since they spell it out in Arabic (maybe it would sound too weird to do that in English? "O, M-A-R-Y") Here is that same hymn in the Arabic, sung by Adel Maher: Ya Mim-Rim-Ya-Mim

Der rhymes with "hair."

Voghormia is pretty much pronounced how it is spelled, with the gh sounding kind of like a French r.  If you listen closely to the video, you can hear it.

I'm not sure what to make of this song about the Mother of God.  It uses modern instrumentation which I normally don't like.  Also, much of the imagery in the video is not from the Armenian Orthodox tradition.  Still, there is something about it that that I liked:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIeyL1waY88

I think at least part of it is filmed in Jerusalem.

Most everything in that video is from Jerusalem and the surrounding areas, including several sites that have to do with Mary that are held by other confessions, yet are venerated by Armenians anyway.  Saw a few familiar faces from the Armenian Quarter, too.

Thanks for the info.  I've never been to Jerusalem.  Perhaps some day...    Smiley 

The video reminds me of this one, which I posted some time ago and which I think also may have been made in Jerusalem:

Selam all!

This mezmur is  one among many that are more of a traditional(customary) mezmur from the shepherds and young kids in Ethiopia sung during the week of the Feast of the Nativity into the feast of Theophany around the neighbor hoods. The tune is also a public tune. Hope you will enjoy it.

Selam all Smiley
Another Nativity mezmur..

beGol   sekebe  beazrekt   teteblele
Egzie  wemedehin
Beza  kulu  alem  yom  tewelde!

He slept in a manger wrapped in a swaddling cloth
The Lord and Savior
The Redeemer of the World is born today!



This group sings the whole musical number of the hymn so its longer than 10 min, this particular hymn happens to be one of my favorite Christmas hymns especially when sung during the vigil at Church where everyone lights their candle and you can hear the sound of  the bells ringing , the heralding drums ,the ululating of  women , see the procession of the clergy with the Holy Cross and the Nativity’s Icon  with the rising incense it is one of a kind experience that  makes the young and old leap and dance with joy while singing the Redeemer of the World is born today! angel

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pV9jRxYZ-CI&feature=related  part 1

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=br20Duen5tw&feature=related  part 2

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAhIkS5RpG0&feature=related  part 3

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yu83TJAjfoI&feature=related  part 4

Ok here is another one with the same mezmur with the single line “ beza kulu alem yom tewelde / the Redeemer of the World is born today!/ however with different guys singing it, the reading is from Luke 2:9-10  Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”

This is one officially one my favorites.  Thank you  Smiley  It truly helped me meditate on the importance of the Forerunner's mission, in comparison with the Theotokos.  The Theotokos brought Christ to the world.  The Forerunner brought the world to Christ.  Happy Timket Hiwot!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Mezmur by Estephanos
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rDB0kJGd0Y&feature=related

Reading from the book of Daniel 7:9 ““As I looked,
thrones were placed,
and the Ancient of Days took his seat;
his clothing was white as snow,
and the hair of his head like pure wool;
his throne was fiery flames;
its wheels were burning fire.



Bezemenat yeshemegele/ The  Ancient of Days
 kibrin hulu yeteqelele/  encompassing of ALL Glory
Ende Geta ere man ale?!/Who is Like The Lord?!
Ende Egziabher ere man ale?!/Who is Like God?!

Tilobignal megonatsefiya/ He has put on His mantel on me
Leyetognal ke siga tidfiya/ and separated me from the race of the flesh
Besew mizan kibrin mayeleka/ He does not weigh worth by the measurement of men
Ewenetegna geta new leka!/ indeed  He is the True Lord


Bezemenat yeshemegele/ The  Ancient of Days
 kibrin hulu yeteqelele/  encompassing of ALL Glory
Ende Geta ere man ale?!/Who is Like The Lord?!
Ende Egziabher ere man ale?!/Who is Like God?!

Demena new menkorakuru / Cloud is His chariot
Nebelbal new zufan menberu/ flaming fire is the Altar of His Throne
Meseweriyaw ayederesim/ He conceals himself with heights unapproachable
Bemanim mot ayekesesim/ He cannot be accused of anyone’s death.

Bezemenat yeshemegele/ The  Ancient of Days
 kibrin hulu yeteqelele/  encompassing of ALL Glory
Ende Geta ere man ale?!/Who is Like The Lord?!
Ende Egziabher ere man ale?!/Who is Like God?!


Qen zemenat hulu siyareju/ days and ages grow old
Addisochu zebnew sijaju/ the new ones quickly age and are debilitated
Geta addis new hulem maleda/  yet the Lord is ever New , fresh like the new  morning
Fiqr yazenbal ke libu guada/ from the depth of His heart pours forth Love


Bezemenat yeshemegele/ The  Ancient of Days
 kibrin hulu yeteqelele/  encompassing of ALL Glory
Ende Geta ere man ale?!/Who is Like The Lord?!
Ende Egziabher ere man ale?!/Who is Like God?!


Mekanitun be lij bareke/ He blessed the barren with children
Hayelegnawin anberekeke/ He made the mighty bow down
Lemiskinoch silemirara/ because He is compassionate to the poor
Be Eyesus libachin kora/ our hearts take pride in Jesus.


Bezemenat yeshemegele/ The  Ancient of Days
 kibrin hulu yeteqelele/  encompassing of ALL Glory
Ende Geta ere man ale?!/Who is Like The Lord?!
Ende Egziabher ere man ale?!/Who is Like God?!

Glory be to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit both now and ever unto the ages of ages amen!

I guess this a good place as any to start. Linked is the Dialogue of the Two Thieves, pretty much exactly what it says on the tin. It's traditionally sung by two deacons during Good Friday services in the Indian tradition.
