I think this is so beautiful, God bless the Armenians, and the Syrians who are sharing this beauty with us.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKBtb3zZhOE

the priest's version is also so so beautiful, ever since i found this on you tube,I like to listen to it often, but especialy at the end of a stressful or rather long day, both the prayer and the way it is being prayed here just  comforts and reassures me that God is in control.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-7asymfkO4&feature=related

Again thank God for those who shared this with us!

Christ is Risen!
After the great lent, the fast that is cherished by all members of the church, is the fast of the Assumption of the Body of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In Ethiopia because school is closed at this time millions of orthodox youth flock to the monasteries all over the country for the entire time of the fast. and those who remain in the cities most leave the comfort of their beds and sleep on the floors, observe strict dietary restrictions, and attend ‘seatat’ the midnight prayer of the church as well as the Divine Liturgy done at mid day during week days and in the morning during the weekends. The children that come to the Divine Liturgy are so many that in order to be done on reasonable time the Holy Eucharist is given on one day for boys and the next for girls, it is at this time that most children get to learn a lot about their faith, the Traditions of the church, while fasting, and attending the Divine Liturgy they get to smell the incense, they see the holy icons, they hear of the Love and Mercy of God through the prayers of the church and when the Holy Scriptures are read, they experience the, the bells , the candles, the thousands of Christians around them, all asking the intercession of The Theotokos asking her to come among them with her Beloved Son Jesus Christ and bless them.  My most found memories of my experience within the church as a child are during this fast period. I think children need to participate in the Church services, when they experience it, when they understand it, when they are familiar with it, love is easily nurtured, and that love I think helps one to stay anchored in the orthodox way.

Here is one part of the midnight prayer of the church, ‘ ne’ei ha’bene O  dingil mis’ele weledeki fikure’ki Iyesus Christos, keme tibareki la’elene’.
‘Come to us O Virgin, along with your beloved Son Jesus Christ, and bless us.’

This particular prayer is accompanied with a solemn ritual, it is done in a group of two and when one group says the first prayer, the other group prostrates themselves and pray the prayer of Mary known as ‘the magnificat’ it starts with ‘ selam lehki enze nisegid nibleki O Maryam nastebetsuaki emarewe neawi temahetsene beki , be ente Hanna emeki we Iyakhem abuki mahebere neyom dingil bareki’  we prostrate ourselves and say peace be unto you O Mary, and bless  your name,  in you we seek protection from the beast that hunts us , for the sake of your mother Hanna, and your father Joachim  we ask you Virgin to bless our assembly. Then comes the prayer St Mary prayed in Luke:1 :46-54. As that group finishes that prayer they get up at the same time the other group would be prostrating and the prayer continues...

Blessed day everyone
 Glory be to the Father and to the Son and the Holy Spirit, both now and ever and unto the ages of ages Amen!

Christ is Risen!
Dn.Theodoros's mezmur

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNRV1le7tJA&feature=related


The tides rose against me
The storm came after me
And those who sow said who will rescue him now!
But I escaped in peace and stillness
Because all things are possible with you O Lord.

I am healed with your wounds
I am a captive of your love
You trampled down my death by your death
And behold you raised me up to Life.
The tides…

When I came before you in prayer of supplication
You did not reject me
I humbled myself like the tax collector
And your grace and mercy sheltered me
The tides..

If I am ever shouting for joy and singing
It's because I know your love
If I am ever calling your name Lord
It's because you have changed the story of my life.
The tides..

My eyes cannot see any other than you
For you are captivating and adorable
You became my family, you became my relative
For surely who else could bare to be with me?
The tides..

blessed day.. Smiley

Another mezmur by Dn. Theodoros ...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ax9c1LAxo3I

In The Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, One God! Amen.
Be Vigilant and Pray so you may not enter into temptation. Mathew 26:41

Let us be vigilant and pray so we may not enter into temptation
Let God enter our lives and all our assemblies
 By prostrating ourselves in prayer to our Father 
Let us be girdled with might.
So we may live in grace and our adversary will be driven away.

Rise Up for Prayer!
Let us be Vigilant and Pray…….

Remember we are in the middle of the battle field
And our enemy’s legion is fully armed.
O how many among us he has stricken down finding us unarmed.
We have run out of oil , and the light of our lanterns grows dim.
How can we see the enemy’s fortress if we abandon the light?

Rise Up for Prayer!
Let us be Vigilant and Pray…….

The Lord will lean His ears towards us
He will smite the enemy
He will break his snare and will save us those who trust in Him.
He will lead us into the green pastures restoring our Hope.
Who is known to be ashamed after calling on the Name of God.!?

Rise Up for Prayer!
Let us be Vigilant and Pray…….

For He is the Oil of Glory poured on the wounded
 Healing to the world and is given without payment.
The Father of Love will open His gates when we knock
He will bless us giving us what we seek.

Rise Up for Prayer!
Let us be Vigilant and Pray…….

Glory be to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, both now and ever and unto the ages of ages Amen.

Dn.Theodoros Yossef's mezmur..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vo-ozRFOyAk&feature=related



Until we see your resurrection O Virgin
We are holding vigil and will fast united in Spirit.
Until it is revealed to us the truth that Thomas saw.
We will not leave from your gates O Covenant of Mercy!

He that trampled down death: Your Son is with You!
So which grave can hold You in ?
From Thomas we heard news of Your Assumption
Your resurrection is true indeed; we saw Your Burial Shawl.
 
For death is already defeated by death
thus had no power over You!
We wanted to see the glory Thomas saw
Mystified why this mystery was hidden from us
Closing our doors we are prostrated in prayer
Reveal yourself and shine your light upon us
For Your children we long to see You!

For death is already defeated by death
Thus had no power over You!
Until we see your resurrection O Virgin
We are holding vigil and will fast united in spirit.
Until it is revealed to us the truth that Thomas saw.
We will not leave from your gates O Covenant of Mercy!

Your psalmist father David has written to us
Saying who among us will not see death?
Though in time this became true in You also
You did not descend in to the grave forever defeated by death!


For death is already defeated by death
Thus had no power over You!
Until we see your resurrection O Virgin
We are holding vigil and will fast united in spirit.
Until it is revealed to us the truth that Thomas saw.
We will not leave from your gates O Covenant of Mercy!

When Thomas descending from his chariot told us of this news
We were astounded by what has occurred.
Now we long to see this glory
O virgin intercede for us! O Covenant of Mercy!

For death is already defeated by death
Thus had no power over You!
Until we see your resurrection O Virgin
We are holding vigil and will fast united in spirit.
Until it is revealed to us the truth that Thomas saw.
We will not leave from your gates O Covenant of Mercy!

Selam everyone:)

Harp mezmur by Sosena Gebre Iyesus, I am sorry I couldnot keep the poetic beauty , its more of a literal translation.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GV6gPW9uTmg

Our Creator is Goodness by His Essence
He is Forgiving, Merciful, Kind, Patient and Loving.
Though mankind sinned against Him
He came searching for him, and kept knocking at his door.

Our Lord was Born in a stable and saved us!

Summoned from His Throne by His love for mankind
He United Himself with flesh, O Uncontainable Glory!
While mankind was still the enemy filled with wickedness
To make him His family He United Himself with Man's flesh.

Our Lord was Born.

Mankind that was stripped of grace and glory
Is restored to his glory by the Love of The Creator
Finding him dwelling under the shadow of death
Heart filled with sorrow and lamentation
He wiped away his tears and gave him Life.

Our Lord was Born..

When God was Born in flesh from the Virgin
Grace was restored to Man.
Through the annunciation of Gabriel of His Birth of the Virgin
He made mankind heir to the heavenly kingdom.

Our Lord was Born.

So we won't die in vain, as we flee from Him
His birth became the Sign of Our reconciliation.
For He has taken our flesh and glorified us
Praise be unto Him for all eternity.
Our Lord was Born..
………..//……….

I notice some youtube commenters got a bit angry about women playing the begena. Is that just a bit of cultural chauvinism or was it actually a Church prohibition?

during fast seasons, no drums , or cymbals with the hymns we are going to listen to. instead its harps, other strings, and flutes only.
 so here is another harp mezmur this is a poetic form of the Our Father, and the Salutation of Mary. by Alemu Aga.

I thought I would write the lyrics in Amharic too so if anyone is so inclined can join the zemari with the mezmur. Keep me in your prayers. the reading is from Psalm 142(3):9 I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4uKR2NSPw8


Kezemenat befit ante neberek/    Before time was there You were
Hulun asalifeh tinoraleh/   After ending all You will remain.
Emqideme zemenat zemenawi /    Before time was there You were
Dehere zemen hadis Iyesus Nazerawi /    and after time ceases there you will be O Jesus the Nazarene


Kibreh genana new bante keberealehu/  You are exalted in Glory and I am glorified by You.
Zelalemawi  neh  bante enoralehu/  Your years have no end and I live by You.
Beselefu mekakel aleh kene gara/  in the midst of battle You are there with me.
Yeserawit geta etsub yante sira/ How marvelous is your work O Lord of Hosts!


Kezemenat befit…

Kelaye ke aryam ke zufaneh girma / on High above the heavens from the Glory of Your Throne
Qidus ale Kirub misgana tessema / the Cherubim are heard praising ‘Holy!’
Wudasse kebebew menberun eleleta’ / praise surround His throne and the sound of triumphant cymbals
Baryah lamesegeneh fiqedelegne getta / Grant me Your servant to praise You too O Lord!


Kezemenat befit….

Ye amalikt amlak yemimeseleh yelem / No one is like You, O God of gods
Ayene yayew hulu yalante alehonem / Nothing my eyes see is done without You.
Fitrete alemu genezebeh newena / Because all creation is Yours
Alphana Omega yidreseh misgana / To You belongs all praise O Alpha and Omega.


Kezemenat befit…

Yemidir hayalan ayeqomum befiteh / the mighty of the earth can’t stand against You
Yihen serah belo yelem yemiweqsih / No one can chastise You for the work of Your hands
Semayina midrin fetreh yemitegeza/ You are the Creator and Ruler of the Heaven and the Earth
Enamelekihalen  ye hiwotachin beza / our Redeemer we worship You!

Kezemenat befit….

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIHWT4kyU_c&NR=1

Yezelalem Tesfa/ Everlasting Hope. By yilma

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

Besew zend bimuatet tesefana dessita/ Though hope and joy have gone from men.
Egnas fetari alen hulun yemireta/ But We have our God who will conquer all.
Tessfa endelelachew anehonim keto/ We will not be like those who have no hope
Kirstos alelin yemiyasay abereto/ We have Christ our Light who will shine for us.

Yaleqesu hulu yisiqalu ayiqerim/ Those who weep today shall be filled with joyful laughter
Yilewawetewal  geta  medehanealem/ For the Lord the Savior of the World will transform all
Manim yaletebeqew yalasebewin dil /A victory that men can’t imagine or expect
Legna lemesekinoch geta yisetenal /The Lord will give to us the lowly

besew zend...

Sewoch bitebebu genzeb lemesebseb/If men became wise only to gather money
Yitelalefalu baletebequt mereb /They will be entangled by a net they won’t expect
Egziabheren yizew beqin kaleteguwazu/If they do not walk in righteousness with God
Kifat ena tenkol bizu new mezmu /Cruelty and malice will bring to them innumerable suffering.

besew zend....

Dehoch aseleqiso giff yemisebeseb/He that gathers injustice with the tears of the poor
Min yimelish yihon begeta fit siqerib? /What will be his answer when he stands before the Lord?
Lezihich achir zemen yemisegebegebu /Those who are greedy for this brief moment in time
Ayerekum ayetegebum dehoch eyaserabu/They will not quench their thirst nor get filled while starving the poor

besew zend....


Yeehil sheeta tefeto  mesobum biraqot/Though our baskets are empty and we have long forgotten the smell of food
Tessfachin mulu naw egnas begeta fit /In the presence of the Lord our hope remains full
Yihin kifu gize yashagiral geta / The Lord will help us pass this time of suffering
Kesseran behuwala letselot  eneberta  /So let us, after doing our works persevere in prayer.

besew zend...

Selam Hiwot! I am loving your translations of the Tewahedo mezmur. Thank you so much for them! The Ethiopian Orthodox mezmur is very special to me, but I do not know the language so it is good to finally learn a little. Smiley

If it is not too much trouble, could I ask for a translation of this mezmur by Mirtinesh?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eg4zbiXkdF4

It has been a favorite of mine for a long time now. Somewhere in the comments for the video it says that the text is based on the book of Ruth, but it would be so wonderful to know the actual words. Ameseginalehu.

Selam everyone Smiley

Dear dzheremi selam, it is truly the least I can do, but thank you for your kind words; keep me in your prayers.This mezmur is indeed based on the book of Ruth, and from the story, it draws parallels with the historical and present situation in Ethiopia (Naomi the faithful one) and the suffering of the people and their hope for deliverance by God. Their prayer for righteous leadership like David (a leader after God’s own heart)  was born from the line of Boaz( to indicate ,from the line of Christians ).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eg4zbiXkdF4

Introduction is a paraphrase of Ruth 1:1-2 Bebetelehem rehab behonebet zemen arat nefsat wede moabawiyan mender tesededu yesetitum sim nuhamin neber./When there was  famine in the land of Bethlehem four souls sojourned to the land of the Moabites ,the name of the woman was Naomi.


Nuhamin deguwa set zares min honeshal/ Good woman Naomi, what troubles you today?
Dessta  kanchi  reqo  hazen  tsentobishal/ for joy has left you and sorrow has engulfed you
Bemoab  kagegnesh  zeyet  ena  sinde/ if you found oil and wheat in the land of Moab
Ebakish  anchi  set  atitsnagnim  ende/ please woman why aren’t you comforted?

Sidetegna negne lageru engeda/ I am a sojourner in a foreign land
 Lemoab sewoch  yehonekugne bada/ a stranger to the people of Moab
Enbaye yefesal bayenoche moleto/ my eyes over flow with tears
Besew hager laye wedajun ato/ for the loss of my kinsmen in a foreign land

Ketagesut hulum yalefal/2// with patience all shall pass
Gin eskiyalef yalefal/ though great is the toil until it does

Ayezosh enatachin ejig atikefi/ be consoled our mother do not despair
Yihen yechinqun qen betsenat elefi/ pass this day of suffering with perseverance
Dineget endezebet tarik yilewetal/ history changes sudden and fickle
Yemayetewish neguss liredash yimetal/ and your faithful King will come to your aide.

Ebakachihu tewugne Ruth ena orpah/ please turn back Ruth and Orpah
Edilebis honeku nuroyem kefa/ for misfortune plagues me and my life is a misery
Lijochem raqugne mot wesedachew/ my children are far from me taken away by death
Nafeqewalena wede abatachew/   As they have longed for the countenance of their Father.

Ketagesut hulum yalefal/2/ with patience all shall pass
Gin eskiyalef yalefal/ though great is the toil until it does

Nuhamin Ethiopia talaqitua midir/Naomi Ethiopia O land of greatness
Silemin temolash huket ena shibir/ why are you filled with chaos and strife
Yemekera meret honesh akeldama/  a land of suffering , a field of blood
Eskemeche dires endezih emama/ O Momma, how long will you be this way!?

Merarawin weyen asegonchitognal/  He has made me drink the bitter wine
Mengeden hulu beshoh atirobignal/ He has blocked my ways with thorns
Fiqir ena selam requwal kebete/Love and peace have deserted my home
Yasecheneqegnal bichegnenete/ desolation torment me.

Ketagesut hulum yalefal/2/with patience all shall pass
Gin eskiyalef yalefal/ though great is the toil until it does

Begizew yihonall ersu yefeqedew/ all will be in good time according to His will
Besimu lemiyamenu neger lebego new/ to those who believe in His Name, all things work together for good
Yeahizabin selif keqitrish yagedal/ He will guard your gates from the army of the heathen
Beboaz azmera Dawit yiweledal/ from the lot of Boaz David will be born.

Yaregelegne be eweneet litsenana be’ersu/ let it be done to me, may He comfort me thus
Liben yabertaw qidus menfesu/ let His Holy Spirit strengthen my heart
Beselam yider miskin wegene/ and my lowly countrymen May they dwell in peace
Yageren tifat aleyew beayene/ may my eyes never see the destruction of my country!

Ketagesut hulum yalefal/2/ with patience all shall pass
Gin eskiyalef yalefal/ though great is the toil until it does

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

Selam everyone  Smiley
It’s the eve of the feast of the Transfiguration in the Ethiopian Calendar, for those that share a similar calendar, I wish a blessed feast of Transfiguration! and I wanted to share a bit of the tradition one would see in Ethiopia on this day along what is more of a traditional way of celebratory song . I have tried to paraphrase some of the information I got from the book ‘the History of the Ethiopian Church’ by By the His Grace the late Archbishop of Showa Abune Gorgoriyos (M.A) of Eternal Memory.
This is the day our Lord reveled the Light of His Divinity and the Glory of His Majesty. This feast day is celebrated every August 13 E.C. this feast day also has another name among the faithful: it is called ‘Buhe’.  The name Buhe (uncovered, bared, bold) might have come from the fact that this is a time when the gloominess of the winter starts to give way to the light of the spring. As the Ethiopian  saying goes ‘ after buhe there is no winter, and after the rooster crows there is no more night’. However in Palestine this time of the year is a time of summer where hardly any clouds are seen. In our country the children before the approach of this feast day start to weave ropes into whips and crack those making loud thunderous sounds usually in unexpected moments which can be scary to unsuspecting people. They do this to symbolize how like thunder the voice of God is and how the three apostles were terrified and fell on the ground. The mothers in preparation for this feast day’s traditional meal (the traditional Ethiopian wheat bread) they take special care in preparing the wheat for the bread. On the eve of the feast day (August 12) the neighborhood children will go from house to house singing ‘buhe, buhe,’ and with different traditional creative lyrics they will sing about the day. The household they went to the mothers will give them the bread prepared for that purpose and the children will sing the thanks giving and blessing part of the traditional songs and will go to the next house. On the eve night most neighborhoods light campfires to remember the Light of Tabor.
This feast is very special to the traditional Students of the Church, they go around villages collecting what they need for the preparation of the feast and since the villagers know the tradition they give them in abundance. The students then will prepare a feast from what they have gathered and serve it after the Divine Liturgy for the faithful who came to attend the Liturgy. And within the church this is the day where we get to pick our drums and cymbals we have put away for the fast and celebrate with joy then we will put them away again after this day until the feast of the Assumption of the Most Pure Theotokos. Well this might perhaps help a little bit to understand what one is seeing if ever one finds oneself in Ethiopia on this day  Smiley

 Come dear friends! Let us sing the Glory of Zion the City of Our Lord!

Reading From the daily prayer book "Behold the praise of Our Lady Mary Virgin Mother of God read on Monday !/ wudaseha le egzietine maryam dingil weladite amlak  zeyitenebeb be’elete  senuy!"

The Lord willed to return Adam who was downcast and sad to his earlier dwelling. O Pure One intercede for us!/ feqede egzie yageezo le adam hizune wetikuze lib  weyagebewo habe zetikat menberu. Seali lene Qidist.

Let the heavens and the earth hear it, as you bring your praise to Mary!/ semayat midrim yademitu lemaryam missganan ametu!
It’s a glorious Hymn of the mystery, of the grace given to men/ etsub new   qinew yesew lijoch tsega

Awakening the Harp the heart of God called on her being captive of her Glory./libe amlak terat begenan ansito lekibruwa tereto!

Pouring forth praise with the sweetest tune, / betium lissan beminqoreqorew

 We enter her dwelling place and prostrate ourselves saying peace be upon you/ selam leki ej enenesalen kemeqedesuwa gebeten

Let the heavens and the earth hear it, as you bring your praise to Mary!/ semayat midrim yademitu lemaryam missganan ametu!



We grew up within her tent, in a land entrusted to Her,/ be asrat hageruwa be dinkuwanua adegenal
 what have we lacked while taking refuge in  her,/ kersuwa gar noren min godelobin yaweqal?
 however much we sing  and cry out  with joy, we won’t get satisfied No  not even for a moment!/ yetun binezemir anerekaam lafeta binawered eleleta

Let the heavens and the earth hear it, as you bring your praise to Mary!/ semayat midrim yademitu lemaryam missganan ametu!



While we are in the land of our inheritance and not in a foreign land / be baed ayedelem be erstachin laye nen
 Take the hanging lyre down,/ mesenqon aweredu yeteseqelewin
 And in the land of our exile in a foreign land  she precedes our tears and fills us with hymn. Be engidenet bet enbachinin qedema molachin bezema

 Hold the lyre and the harp, bring abundant praise and shout with joy/  mesenqon begenan yazu , eliletan wudasen abezu

Prayer: Lord Truly You are the source of Wisdom , in Your greatness You have made everything beautiful in its time! / getaye hoy be ewenet yetibeb hageruwa ante neh negerin hulu begizew wub aderegeh sertehewalina talaq neh!

O my Lord ! O my God! Who dwells in the Heavens ./ getaye hoye amelake hoy besemay yalehew/2x/
In Your creation I see You and the Splendor of Your Beauty./ ayehalehu befitretih getegna honeh/2x/

What is the depth You have prepared for the ocean and what is its limit?/ yazegajehelet yewuqiyanos tilequ yet yihon metenu?
What is the measurement of the heavens their depth and their width?/ yesemay darecha tileqtu sifatu min yihon metenu?
No one can tell the works of your hand even with thousand tongues!/ sheih quwanquwa  biweled tenegero tenegero ayaleq yante sira!
With Your thoughts of Wisdom You did not need a helper or counselor friend./  silasebkew tibeb eredat atisham mekar balienjera /2x/

O my Lord ! O my God! Who dwells in the Heavens ./ getaye hoye amelake hoy besemay yalehew/2x/
In Your creation I see You and the Splendor of Your Beauty./ ayehalehu befitretih getegna honeh/2x/


 all that You have created by speaking in silence, obeys Your laws of creation./ dimtsih sayisema befeterekew sira fitret yitazezal
And to the One Lord, to the One King, all serve with Love./ hulum land geta hulu land nigus befiqir yigezal
The birds singing in one accord with the psalmists/ Aewafe mezmur kezemegnoch gara und wegen honewal
They have revealed to us the wonder of Your Wisdom and Holiness. / dinq tibebihin qidusenetihin legna asayitewal/2x/

O my Lord ! O my God! Who dwells in the Heavens ./ getaye hoye amelake hoy besemay yalehew/2x/
In Your creation I see You and the Splendor of Your Beauty./ ayehalehu befitretih getegna honeh/2x/


You have made the firmament of water and its walls of fire. / wuhawinim tefer gidgidawin esat adrigeh sertehal
You hold the four winds sealed  at the four corners of the earth. / aratun nefasat be maezen alem weseneh zegetehal
When You command them the clouds ascend from the end of the earth./  bemitazew gize yiwetal demena kemidir darecha
Within Your palms you hold the lot of a man which unlocks the mystery of his life./ be ejih chebitehal yesewin lij eidil yehiwotun meficha /2x/
O my Lord ! O my God! Who dwells in the Heavens ./ getaye hoye amelake hoy besemay yalehew/2x/
In Your creation I see You and the Splendor of Your Beauty./ ayehalehu befitretih getegna honeh/2x/

Doxologies: St Severus (Patriarch of Antioch)

The confirmed leaders, the great defenders, the winners of the fight, the bright lamps.

+ The pillar of Orthodoxy, is Abba Severus the patriarch, the teacher of the rational, flock of Christ.

Your upright teaching, defeated the heretics, like the two edged sword, through the power of Christ.

+ Likewise we magnify You, with David the psalmist, You are the priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.

Every knee bows to the Lord, every tongue blesses Him, the glory of God has spread, and filled the whole world.

+ Pray to the Lord on our behalf, O teachers of the Orthodoxy, Severus and Dioscorus, that He may forgive us our sins.

Have you ever sung and danced from a roof top or hanging from a fence or a tree? I mean the spiritual kind of song Wink; you might like to see some do it. Grin It might remind you of what  Zacchaeus did to  see Christ among the crowd of people, it does that to me. well there is somekind of  order to the chaos you see Undecided  Grin and I always loved the crowd’s unrehearsed spontaneous selection of hymns and coordination on these processions. Because of the editing they switch the hymns quickly with each I cannot translate it all, but the feast is that of epiphany the day before, the feast of canna, and St. Michael on this day that you see. As you can see they attempt to sing about all those feasts. The ark on this procession is that of St. Michael. You might see the icon of St Michael as it is raised high the youth chanting ‘ersu new Michael! Ersu new Michael!’/ ‘it is him St. Michael! it is him St. Michael!’ they also chant,’ look at him shining like the sun ‘ / eyut siyabera ende jember’ they switch and start to sing egziabher yimesegen lezih yaderesen’ Thanks be to God for letting us see this day’ then it switches again and they say ‘ anchi yordanos minigna tadelesh ye egziabher menfes kelay werdobish yealem medihanit tetemeqebish/ and you Jordan how lucky you are for the Spirit of God descended from heaven and the Savior of the world got baptized in you!.’ At some point they say, be ede yohanis tetemqe Iyesus nazrawi semayawi be ede midrawi/ by the hand of John, Jesus the Nazarene got baptized lo the heavenly by the hand of the earthly/ there is a lot of halleluiahs going on … well   that was just a snapshot of what goes on during this feast. Hope you enjoyed it somehow  Grin

Biruk awede amet! Melkam addis amet! Enqutatash! Enkuan le Qidus Yohannis beal beselam aderessachihu!  Happy New Year! Grin

As part of the celebration of the New Year, this time being spring time in Ethiopia young girls and children go around form house to house bringing flowers and singing. Little boys draw New Year well-wishing paintings, and go around giving it to people. On the eve of the New Year, the celebratory torches are lit campfires made and people sing around them in thanksgiving for the ending of the winter and the coming of the spring and the New Year. I thought I would share one of the songs of the young girls with you; the tune is traditional so it’s a public melody,  I used to enjoy hearing the high pitched voice of the girls singing here and there as I passed through neighborhoods.

My cousin is part of this new group called CoptAcapella.  They released a unique rendition of a Coptic spiritual song, "My Coptic Church":

This really is beautiful.  Do you know if they are going to put together a CD?

They have a free podcast, and they update it every once in a while:

They just released another track, "Love, Love" in it.

I really want to know where to get good CD's or high-quality downloads of this Mezmur stuff- it's awesome. I know you can get the MP3's from Youtube but the sound quality isn't as good.

Alright, since writing about Ahmed Gragn and Ethiopia in this thread has kind of bummed me out a little, I did a little search for Oromo Orthodox mezmur, and with great joy found some really amazing stuff by Deacon Geremu Bayesa:

Haalle Luuyyaa
Kidane Mihret
Kulkulu Michael

The Oromo are a formerly majority-Christian people who were mostly converted to Islam in the 14th century. The Oromo are a Cushitic people, speaking a language related to Somali, Afar, etc. These recordings are very special because Protestants are active in converting Oromo such that most of what you'll find if you look for Oromo Christian hymns are Protestant gospel songs. If there exist more Orthodox hymns in Cushitic languages, I'd love to hear them... (Hiwot? Habte?  Wink)

yes its beautiful ! I know people who can speak Oromufa but they have gone back home, when they return I will ask them to help me to translate into Amharic so I can translate it into English. you can find the whole CD mezmur of Deacon Geremu on this website

 http://www.tewahedo.org/g_m.html

I have not found mezmur  in any other language besides ,oromufa and tigrigna, and I have very limited understanding of tigrigna and I do not want to mess up the translation so I have asked my dear Eritrean friend to help me translate, so I will try to post some tigrigna mezmur both from Ethiopia and Eritrean zemariyans as I am able.

I know there are quite a few oromufa mezmurs out there, mahebere kidusan had published one album in oromufa that i know of, but apparently they have not found their way on line yet. there is a need though to use all the major languages of the south to make mezmurs for exactly the reasons you mentioned.

blessed day  Smiley

Selam lekemu Smiley

The finding of the Holy Cross is celebrated in Ethiopia on September 26/27on leap year or in Ethiopian calendar September 17 starting from the eve on the 16th. This day marks the first  day of the 6 month it took to excavate the Holy Cross, St. Helena found the Holy Cross on Megabit 10 ( March 19). It is commemorated on both Months with  the celebration of the Divine Liturgy and the singing of Hymns. However in addition to all of these on September 16 evening there is a great procession to the Holy Cross square, in Addis Ababa, and in remembrance of St. Helena’s using the smoke of the incense from the bonfire as an indicator of where the Holy Cross was buried there is a bonfire lit with a sign of the cross made with ‘meskel daises’ a bright yellow daisy that blooms at that time and covers the fields everywhere you see with golden hue. Sunday School Choirs from all over the city come to the Square singing the message of the Cross, the Exultation of the Cross, re enacting the search of the Holy Cross by St. Helena, carrying the flags of all sovereign nations of the world as part of the message of the cross being the brotherhood of mankind and as a reminder of the message of peace and love it brings the world. This day is one of the National Holidays so people gather in thousands to celebrate it, the day of the demera/ lighting of the fire is the eve of meskel, The celebration is in every Orthodox Christian home and parish churches also where bonfires with the sign of the cross are prepared and after being blessed by priests they are lit and the celebratory singing ensues , and after the fire burns down and people go to their homes only to return in the morning to get the ash and mark themselves on their foreheads with a sign of the cross, so when you go into town on meskel day you see people with the sign of the Cross marked with ash on their foreheads everywhere. Here is one mezmur   about the Finding of the True Cross.

Thank you for the link to Deacon Geremu's album, Hiwot. I'm in heaven now!

I have not found mezmur  in any other language besides ,oromufa and tigrigna, and I have very limited understanding of tigrigna and I do not want to mess up the translation so I have asked my dear Eritrean friend to help me translate, so I will try to post some tigrigna mezmur both from Ethiopia and Eritrean zemariyans as I am able.

That would be wonderful!

I have always wondered, since first being exposed to Tewahedo mezmur several years ago, about mezmur in other languages in Ethiopia. I guess Afan Oromo, Amharic and Tigrinya are it, huh? That is too bad. What about the Southern people who are majority Christian, like the Dorze? It would be amazing to hear their polyphonic singing in mezmur...maybe someday... Smiley

 dzheremi,you are very welcome!
It would be beautiful if there would be mezmur albums released in those languages, it might be my lack of information but I will ask when I call back home if they do have Cd's on any other languages. if they do not I pray they do soon because it is absolutely imperative that the faithful be served in their own language. especially with mezmurs.
