Incredible! I love it. Thank you, Salpy! I wish there was more chant like this available among the Syrian videos from India. There are a lot more videos with incredibly distracting (to me) instrumentation in them. It is good to see a pure one!

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

I know that Der Voghormia (Lord have mercy) has already been posted here somewhere, but I like this version of it:

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...    :) 

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

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  :)  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!

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?!

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.

Part of the Evening Service of Great Friday - Syriac Rite

"We bow to the Cross which gave salvation for our souls.
And together with the thief we say: Oh Christ, remember us when You come."

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:

I think at least part of it is filmed in Jerusalem.
Nazareth, Bethlehem and Jerusalem in that order. Beautiful!

This parish is in Germany and seems to maintain a high standard of liturgical practice.
