MASTER BLESS! HYMNS FROM THE HIERARCHICAL DIVINE LITURGY (CD)

Executant: performed by Archangel Voices conducted by Vladimir Morosan #: 12145

Whenever a bishop serves it is customary to offer musical settings that are particularly elaborate and festive, in part to cover certain liturgical actions that require more time (the Great Entrance, the Communion of the clergy), but also as a way of marking the special character of the occasion.

THE AKATHIST HYMN (CD)

Executant: by Eikona #: 12153

English Language

The Akathist Hymn is a Service of the Orthodox Church that invites the faithful to rejoice in the unique and sublime role the Virgin Mary played in the salvation of mankind. The Divine Incarnation is at the heart of this glorious telling in the form of hymns and prose, for it in the Virgin`s own womb that God became man. In extolling the Blessed Virgin, the Church is fulfilling the Scriptures of her own prophesy which states that "henceforth all generations shall call me blessed" (Lk. 1:48), and in the words of the inspired Elizabeth, "blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb." (Lk. 1:42).

LIFE-GIVING WOOD (FEAST OF THE ELEVATION OF THE CROSS)

Executant: performed by St. Lawrence Orthodox Chorale #: 12157

The Elevation of the Cross, celebrated on September 14th, commemorates the fourth-century discovery of the miracle-working Cross of Christ by Saint Helen, the mother of the Emperor Constantine. It also commemorates the recovery of the Cross from the Persians by the emperor Heraclius in the seventh century. At that time, it was “elevated” in the Church of the Resurrection in Jerusalem, which Saint Helen had built in its honor. To this day, bishops and priests in the Orthodox Church raise up the Cross on the feast day as the faithful continually chant “Lord have mercy” (Track 19). The Cross is raised as our symbol of victory over death, strength and healing for the faithful, and our reminder that we find eternal life through self-denial in this life.
