If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Coptic Christian Night Mass in Egypt زيدوا المسيح تسبيح من ليلة الصلاة والرجوع إلى الله
At minute mark 3:20 and 4:03 it looks like it's at a famous Cave Church and is led by a priest.

Maybe someone recognizes the song?
It sounds very different than Orthodox styles I have heard.

I am not sure, is this like Middle Eastern Christian folk melodies with instrumental accompaniment, or is it very Western influenced:

It's definitely a paraliturgical song. And with an error in writing (at least in standard Arabic), as it should be معنا not معانا ("with us").

This was a Protestant concert gathering.  The Coptic priest responsible for this was deposed and if I'm not mistaken eventually excommunicated from the Church.

His Grace Bishop Abanoub took over the cave church of St. Simeon the cobbler and restored its Orthodoxy.

Good info, thanks for sharing.
It sounds like somehow it got into the hands of a pro-Protestant priest and he set up bleachers outside for Gospel Music concerts?

Yes; he's no longer in the Church and these events no longer occur; he took advantage of the situation when we were transitioning between Popes.

Disgusting.  But sadly, I knew it would only be a matter of time before someone posted a video of Copts singing Protestant songs in the "Oriental Orthodox Music" thread.  Protestant songs are not Oriental Orthodox music no matter who is leading the people in singing them, even if they have on a black galabeya.

Yes; he's no longer in the Church and these events no longer occur; he took advantage of the situation when we were transitioning between Popes.

Glory to God.  I fervently pray that all "pro-Protestant priests" - as rakovsky terms them - in the Coptic Orthodox Church either repent and return to Orthodoxy or are likewise censured.  The spread of this poison must stop.

I found this video about the armenian rite of the Eucharist. Looks quite similar too tridentine rite in some parts, do the armenians use wine and bread?

So only Alpha60 calls him St. Justinian?

He was a persecutor of the anti-Chalcedonian movement. His wife on the other hand was one of their greatest champions.

Yeah, I have no problem with their womenfolk.

Yes I know. I'm really just tweaking Alpha again for calling him Saint.
