I thought you'd enjoy this Hierarchical Liturgy mostly in Slavonic from the Orthodox cathedral in Kosice, Slovakia - broadcast yesterday on Slovak TV. The dark haired bishop is Metropolitan Rastislav of Presov and the taller one is Archbishop George of Kosice/Michalovce. Good choral pacing and well done prostopenije. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-wpBL34A3s&feature=youtu.be

I'd be remiss in not noting that in the Commemorations at the Great entrance of all of the Orthodox primates and Churches, His Eminence included the OCA, so I assume that the reconciliation with Constantinople notwithstanding, his Church in Slovakia is one of the churches which recognizes the status of OCA.

Thank you for posting the link.

Actually, for me the more interesting is the fact of the reason of this liturgical celebration (commemoriation of Armenian genocide) and relations with OO; that's so curious, as I think there are very few OOs in the whole country.

And, btw, one of the most beautiful iconostasis I've seen - coming back to the ancient roots

The connection with the horrors of genocide is the key I think..the Orthodox (and many Greek Catholics in eastern Slovakia) were valiant in the resistance and saving Jews in the world war... so it doesn't seem unnatural to me. The church needs to witness against such atrocities.

Interesting to see the presence of the Armenians (I assume at least some of them are bishops?). The opening chant sounded like prostopinije or znamenny to me (I'm hardly knowledgeable and can only go from the little I've heard) but I also heard a lot of the familiar obikhod/ Kievan chants (e.g. in the antiphons).

Would it be fair to say then that the Czech Lands and Slovakia church is largely Carpatho-Rusyn liturgically speaking?
My understanding is that it's very mixed. I believe there is a sizeable minority of Czechs as well as Romanians, Ukrainians, etc.

Most Eastern Slavs in Slovakia identify themselves as Rusyns, not Ukrainians. It's conversed in the Czech Republic but in there they are immigrants, not indigenous.

And in both countries among those who have left their ancestral villages for work in the cities, they tend to first identify as Slovak but of a  Rusyn background.(even those in the Czech Republic...) ..much as do many of us in the States... American, but of a Rusyn background. And many have lost proficiency in the Rusyn language over time, having been culturally assimilated - again like in America...
