What's that? This thread doesn't have enough tasbeha in Italian? Well, alright then... Wink

(The only fragment of tasbeha I could find in Spanish is way too echoey to follow, but it makes me wonder: Is it possible to buy/download/find an Agpeya in Spanish anywhere? This would be a great help to me, and for all of us living in Latino-majority areas of the world; searching for it online, once I got past the various Spanish translations of ancient pagan/pre-Christian religious texts, the best I've found is a explanation of what it is, but no link to it anywhere in Spanish.)

The above Palm Sunday hymn has been posted before:

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,9840.msg292878/topicseen.html#msg292878

However, rather than a studio recording, this one seems to have been recorded during an actual service.  You can hear the priest hitting the hammer on a piece of wood, which symbolizes someone knocking on the door of heaven.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vepj8NFF5S4&feature=g-all-u - just posted recording of tasbeha in Spanish.
But I can't find anywhere the text translated into Spanish

UPDATE: http://orthodoxbolivia.org/resources/audio/ - there are 2 pieces of tasbeha in Spanish

Thanks, Dominika. Very interesting. Those are "Tentheeno" and the second hoos, respectively. I'm sure there must be Agpeyas in Spanish for the churches in Bolivia and Mexico, but from speaking to people who have served in the Church in Bolivia, they are rather ad hoc, not anything printed. Maybe someday, as the Church grows throughout the Spanish-speaking world... Smiley

From what I understand, HH Pope St. Kyrillos VI adopted this hymn from the Greek Church.  So this would be a very recent addition to the Coptic liturgical hymns.

Mina, was it Pope Kyrillos VI or Pope Kyrillos IV (The father of reformation)?

www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcR1dRVVE-w - the first part is for sure for Kiahk (Advent).
But after the hymn which there are put lyrics (below the video), they sing something different in Arabic and Coptic.

As I can hear, in Arabic it's "allelouia x3 Yassoo-l-Masseh ibnu Allah wolida fee Betheleim" (sorry for bad transcription) what means 'Jesus Christ Son of God is born in Bethelelem" so it's from the refrain of Psalm 150 for Nativity, isn't it?
As for the text which is sung after the frase in Arabic I don't have any idea, but is it also from the Nativity hymn?

And, to make it clear, there are in recording 2 different hymns, one for Advent and one for Nativity?

straight after yasou' al masih (the bit you translated very well! i am impressed with your arabic) they then say the same thing in coptic, then (in coptic) they sing glory (i think) to the Son and His Good Father and to the Holy Spirit, then (i think) now and forever.

please feel free anyone to correct my coptic!

As I love Coptic hymns and songs for Kiahk, because it's full of Advent's (Nativity Fast) spirit, two another recordings with subitles in English and Arabic:

Yes, it's awesome. It's a Christmas hymn (http://www.soc-wus.org/christmas%20page.htm , search "dakhwoth"). This particular version is from this album: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2whgV8BiLg (starts at around :53).

Syriac Orthodox Christmas Hymns "Haw Dmalakhai"

As far I know, the hymn varies dependind on the feast, becasue it's a part of an ritual called "Zuhuyo" - lifting of the thing typical for the particular feast e.g a palm for Palm Sunday, water for Epiphany etc.

So I wonder if the hymn you've posted is exactly for Christmas?...

I'm not an expert on Syriac but I think the last line of the first three stanzas is "D'stlebt Metulothan, w'ethraham al'ain", which roughly means "Thou who was Crucified for us, have mercy on us." For Christmas, the practice in our Church is to sing "Thou who was Born/Incarnate for us, have mercy on us." I might be hearing it though. :/

Maybe that's not exactly proper place, but there is a link for Coptic service of Laquan (blessing of the water) done on this year's Epiphany by the patriarch Tawadros.

In my EO parish the Great Blessing of water, which is done only on Epiphany, lasts 15-20 minutes and in Coptic church it is one and a half hours Shocked

u beat me to it!
i failed to search in arabic.
i hope someone soon will subtitle this, so everyone will benefit.
 Smiley

yes our service is longer coz we have lots of lovely Bible readings, then the actual blessing of the water, then the dabbing (to symbolise washing) of the feet (of all the men) or wrists (of all the women - due to cultural issues), and then we sing a bit and then people collect the holy water.
anyone who gets there a bit late (eg. me!) can beg a bit of holy water from the person next to them and add it to their bottle.

then, in many churches, we do the epiphany liturgy late at night instead of early in the morning.
so we have a 1.5 hr service followed by a 2.5 hr one!
 Shocked
i think we're trying to do a longer service than the slavs!

but we don't throw ourselves in freezing cold blessed water in the extreme ascetic slavic practice, so i guess with that, you guys win the 'who is the most ascetic' contest!

Well, during the rite of the Great Blessing of the water we have 5 readings and some long prayers, but they're just said by preists, and a few hymns chanted (but you know, in Slavic practice it's done in fast way), and the priest immerse the cross in each basin 3 times, so probably in the content EO version is not so much shorter as Coptic one. And of course I haven't counted the time for collecting it, becasue it depends on the number of people. But there is no tradition of dabbing, washing or something like that Wink

Haha I liked "who is most ascetic conquest" Grin I wish one day I took bath in Jordan water (I mean after the blessing of the river), becasue in Warsaw there is no any possibility to do it Sad

But I have to admit, that although Divine Liturgy with the Great blessing of the water lasts about 2.5 hour, in evening before (of course in Slavic practice, in Greek it's done in the morning on the day of Epiphany) we have All-Night Vigil which lasts 2 hours (in some parishes 30 minutes or even 1 hour more) Wink

Earlier, I mentioned a group, "CoptAcapella", of which my cousin is part of.  This is a website with lyrics and the production of songs they have made thus far.  These aren't liturgical in nature, just spiritual songs, which do come for the most part from the Coptic Church in the Arabic spiritual musical, more so than Coptic, translated into English.

Enjoy!

Zemarit Mirtinesh is my favorite, too. Smiley Though I have not heard so much with her that also has krar so prominently featured. It's kind of nice, I think, even though I get the sense that this instrument is not among the most liked for mezmur (maybe it's too closely associated with secular music; I don't know). Usually it's buried a bit more, like in this lovely mezmur by Zerfe Kebede (if it's even in there...I might be hearing things).

Yes, our Ethiopian brothers and sisters are blessed to have such heavenly music as part of their tradition. If I'm going to listen to paraliturgical music, I prefer Tewahedo mezmur to Coptic (well, Arabic) taraneem. Nothing against my own church, of course, it's just...well, you've heard Zemarit Mirtinesh!  Grin

Of course, there is some very powerful taraneem by Coptic ladies, too (don't much care for the likes of Ibrahim Ayad and Co. in this department, myself; sorry, dudes. Boles Malak is a little less annoying, I guess). It's just a different animal, I suppose.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiGS7b-Sp5w - I think it hasn't been posted. One of Malankara Orthodox hymns for Palm Sunday in an arragment that reminds me Bollywood Wink

Actually in the above youtube video, it is sung by a Bollywood singer.  The proper arrangement of this hymn sounds more like the following:

Syriac Orthodox Christmas Hymns "Haw Dmalakhai"

As far I know, the hymn varies dependind on the feast, becasue it's a part of an ritual called "Zuhuyo" - lifting of the thing typical for the particular feast e.g a palm for Palm Sunday, water for Epiphany etc.

So I wonder if the hymn you've posted is exactly for Christmas?...

Here's a video of the actual Zuyoho service done in Malayalam. This was the Holy Friday Zuyoho, where the cross is clothed in white to represent the Lord's burial shrouds.

Strengthen O Lord the work of Your hands(Is 19:25)

This is an English Coptic spiritual song taken from the Arabic Coptic Spiritual song.  The music is the same, the words however are completely different.  Someone very recently created a very different group of lyrics with the same music and same resurrection theme.  In English, the chorus starts with "Resurrection is my song, Resurrection gives me life" but in Arabic, the chorus starts "Inta dost el mawta wahdack, ya Yasou el Nasiree" (You trampled death alone, oh Jesus of Nazereth)

Here's a Coptacapella "remix" of the English:

Here's the original Arabic version (and the way we chant it in Church, even in Liturgy):

This is an interesting Arabic "remix" that I stumbled upon:

Actually this melody is very well known from Middle East to Balkans (including Serbia Wink). And every nation claims its own original melody Wink There is even a movie about it "Whose is this melody?" (I don't know if it's the exact name of this film in English). For example:

Jordi Savall or something Muslim

Anyway, I really like this Coptic song about Resurrection, and the last version (although I'm quite traditional regarding Church music) is so great! Cheesy True spirit of paschal happiness

Hmm. And the same melody reappears for other English texts of the Church, like "Very Early Sunday Morning", which shares the same chorus as the English version posted by Mina (which I'd never heard before; very interesting), but has obviously different verses. I've also heard the same melody sung in very different contexts by both Syriac and Arab Iraqis...

Anyway...paging Hiwot, Ergib, or any other Tewahedo members we might have left: Gurage Muslim superstar Mahmoud Ahmed apparently sings Tewahedo mezmur now? Just what is going on here? Shocked Is it common for Muslims to sing Orthodox mezmur? I wouldn't think so...the closest I've ever seen from Egypt is when Abdel Halim Hafez sang "El Masih", which is obviously much more of a political song than a religious one. And I seem to remember when the film "Hassan w Marqos" came out a few years ago, there was controversy and some people accused its star Adel Imam of converting to Christianity (and/or promoting conversion to it) just for acting in the role of a Coptic priest in a movie that was meant to reduce tensions between Copts and Muslims. So when I see/hear things like the above videos...wow...Ethiopia is blessed! Smiley

Wow...very interesting!  Curious now to think the origins of the melody...hmmmm

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJpNiHAKonU - this year Paschal (Easter) Liturgy with the Coptic pope Tawadrous II. Very nice chanting. Especially these hitenis (~27 min) I find very powerful (expressive).

Some Ethiopian hymns for Pascha (Easter) Smiley

Christ is Risen!

Dzheremi,

He converted to Christianity a few years ago. A sensation at the time. God willing when I get the time I will try to translate that mezmur he is singing.

Beautiful hymns everyone. Thank you for sharing. Smiley
