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.

CHRIST IS RISEN! THE ANCIENT HYMNS OF PASCHA (CD)

Executant: by the Monks of Holy Cross Monastery #: 12159

This recording by the monks of Holy Cross Monastery is dedicated to the Feast of Feasts-the bright and glorious Resurrection of our Lord God and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

The choir has used as a primary musical basis, the official Synodal chant books of the Russian Orthodox Church. These books, the only ones ever blessed for liturgical use by the Holy Synod of the Russian Church, represent the most ancient and venerable forms of Russian Church music. In adapting these sanctified melodies for English text, the monastic choir strives to preserve the reverent and ascetical spirit of the original hymns, while at the same time rendering the English versions easily intelligible.
